Thank you for your reply.Do you know how the lawyers charge for this?
This is up to you. You can ask an attorney what he would charge to be an executor. Most will likely ask for a $50 to $150 per hour rate, although some would agree to a flat fee. Some may even agree to do it for free as part of drafting the will. So it is negotiable.Do we have to pay them to make the will and a yearly fee for agreeing to administer it.
You can pay them either only to draft the will, or to be the executor, or both. Actually, unless your estate is very complicated, a Will can be drafted often without the need for counsel. I am providing three examples below:
Example 1 - here
Example 2 - here
Example 3 - here

So honestly, you may not need an attorney to do this.
