Fees – Wills and Power of Attorney
A Will, Power of Attorney, Representation Agreement and/or Living Will are likely the most important documents that you will ever create!
I try to give an accurate quote before I begin drafting. What may appear simple, however, is not necessarily so. This may result in additional costs being added by me to reflect the complexity of the document. I will discuss this with you in advance so there will be no surprises!
With that in mind, these are my standard costs for the following types of documents:
1 Will: $500.00 including taxes , disbursements and registering the location of the Will with Vital Statistics.
2 Wills: If these essentially mirror one another, $800.00 also including taxes, disbursements and registering the location of the Wills with Vital Statistics.
1 Power of Attorney: $250.00 including taxes and disbursements.
2 Power of Attorneys: Again, if these essentially mirror one another, total cost is $400.00 including taxes and disbursements.
1 Will and Power of Attorney: If done at the same time, $600.00 all in.
2 Wills and 2 Powers of Attorney: If done all at same time, $1000.00 all in.
Representation Agreement: $400-500 including taxes and disbursements.
Living Will: $200-$300 including taxes and disbursements.
Other types of documents, such as statutory declarations, depending on the complexity, may add approximately $100.00 to the bill.
I do not charge extra for hospital, home visits or rush appointments — though with the latter I likely will not give a discount!
