Generally, the cost of a will depends on numerous factors such as real estate, heirs, Medicare and/or Medicaid planning or your goals in general. The best thing to do is to call a firm that handles estate planning and discuss your goals with them and they should be willing to tell you how much it will cost.

Hello, It all depends upon the nature of the Will, the size of the Estate and whether you want exotic things within your Will, such as odd or differenttypes of Trusts or numerou Trusts. It will also depend upon whether you want additional documents prepared, which is fairly normal in such situations. By that I mean a health care proxy, livingWill and other documents. If you want a Power of Attorney, it can get much more expensive because a POAtakes as much time to execute as a Will. Basically, a single Will can start at as little as $450. and run as high as $3500. JointWills do not costtwice as much, but are more expensive than a singleWill. When you add in the additional documents, a normal Will can cost as much as $850-1000. andthe Power of Attorney can run aslittle as $500. to as much as $850. Of course, all of these numbers are just estimates because it can all change if the clienthas been doing business with the law office already or there are other considerations .Those numbers can also change substantially from office to office dependingupon the amount of time invested on behalf of the client.
