Must the estate pay any fees to the Surrogate’s Court?

Yes, each proceeding commenced in the Surrogate’s Court, including the probate proceeding, will require the payment of a fee to the Surrogate’s Court. The size of the fee will vary with the size of the estate, and can run anywhere from $45.00 to $1,250.00 depending on the size of the estate.
