Ask an Estate Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am the named executor. He is asking for an accounting of all income and investments that did not go through the probate court. He says that the probate court sets the attorney fees and this includes a percentage of all assets (insurance, investment, ira, etc) that were not part of the probate estate.
Is there somewhere I can look to find out what the recommended fee schedule is that was established by the probate court. I have been led to believe this includes non probate assets.
