A Probate Attorney is retained using estate funds to guide the Executor or Administrator through the estate administration process. Effective probate attorneys base their workloads and fees on the circumstances of each estate. Our Guide to Pennsylvania Probate Attorney Fees can help you learn what a Probate Attorney in Pennsylvania can charge.
Serving as Executor or Administrator of a Pennsylvania estate is a time-consuming and challenging task. A person taking on this responsibility and commitment deserves compensation. However, since relatively few of us ever serve in this capacity, it’s sometimes confusing to guess whether that compensation is fair or excessive. Our team has compiled The Guide to Pennsylvania Executor’s Fees for Pennsylvania residents, designed to help you avoid mistakes that can put you at odds with creditors or heirs.
A person serving as a trustee is responsible for the proper maintenance of the fund and-often-the well-being of beneficiaries. Is the fee a trustee can charge based on a percentage of the trust fund? Are corporate trustees allowed to charge more than regular people? Our Guide to Pennsylvania Trustee Fees examines how to determine the right compensation structure.
An Agent typically has access to the principal’s entire financial portfolio. When another person has control of your financial assets, how can you ensure they are appropriately compensated? Just because someone is authorized to use your accounts, does not mean they should enjoy free rein. Our Guide to Agent and Power of Attorney Fees in Pennsylvania reviews appropriate Agent compensation.
Guardianships come in many different varieties. Whether overseeing a minor or an incapacitated person, one thread binds the spectrum of scenarios: responsibility and commitment to the incapacitated person. Persons who assume this critical task deserve compensation, but how much? Our Guide to Pennsylvania Guardianship Fees reveals today’s best practices.
