How are Probate Expenses Paid?

Probate expenses are paid out of the assets of the Estate. This includes court costs, filing fees, attorney’s fees, estate taxes, creditor claims. If the assets in the estate are less than the debts (meaning an insolvent estate) the beneficiaries are not responsible for the difference unless the Probate estate is properly managed.
