Good Afternoon

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

Assuming that the total value of the assets of your late mother are not more than $1million then the filing fee for the supreme court is $1,460.00

Solicitors costs for the preparation of the Probate are also regulated and for an estate of $1 million they can charge up to $6,016.45 inclusive of GST

Here is the link for the probate costs under the Solicitors regulations

On top of that there are the Administrative costs and that is at an hourly rate.

A Solicitor has to give you a cost agreement before they start the work

There are also disbursements on top such as advertising and settlement fees.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
