Probate fees are calculated on the value of your estate, at date of death, in accordance with the following formula:
- No fee if the estate is worth less than $25,000;
- A basic fee of $208 if the estate is worth over $25,000;
- A basic fee of $208 plus $6 per $1,000 (for a total of $358 for the first $50,000) if the estate is worth between $25,000 and $50,000;
- $358 plus $14 per $1,000 of estate value over $50,000 if the estate is worth over $50,000.
These figures are current to November 2018 and are subject to change.
