Understanding Probate Costs in Colorado
The basic costs for probate include a filing fee with the court (between $200 – $300 as of 2023), fees for certified copies of court documents (just over $20 per copy), and mailing costs to send copies of court documents to required parties.
Denver Probate Attorney costs for probate depend on the complexity and length of the case, influenced by the factors described above, and the degree to which the personal representative works independently or seeks the attorney’s assistance. In our office, we are open to adjusting our service levels to the client’s desires and needs.
Some clients prefer to hand over the matter to the attorney and have us take on as much of the workload as possible, while others prefer to do anything they can on their own with occasional check-ins with our office.
We also try to delegate work within our office to paralegals and law clerks in a prudent manner to keep the estate’s legal costs down.
It is crucial to remember that attorney fees, as well as other professional fees (for example, accountant, realtor, or appraiser’s fees), can be paid from the estate’s assets and do not need to be paid from the personal representative’s funds.
