Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

The KS laws do not set any fees on probate of estates for lawyer fees or executor fees. Those are set by the court based on the reasonable costs in the area for the services provided. Typically, attorney's fees for probate of a land deal would be about 10-15% of the total value of the land being sold, but that varies from attorney to attorney and depends on the value of the land being sold as well.

Filing fees for probate are $190 with a will and $155 without a will.
