Is probate an expensive process?

Probate can be an expensive process. Here in Florida, it typically runs about three to five percent of the value of the estate, perhaps a little less for higher net worth estates. If an estate is well thought out in advance, there may either be no need for probate or just very minimal need for probate. The bottom line is that by working closely with a good estate planning attorney, you can make things as easy as possible for your loved ones down the road, and also potentially save a lot of money when it comes to probate administration.
