Cost of a will

by Deb
(Toronto Ontario Canada)

Recently I asked for a ball park figure for the cost of a will to be drawn for our family. Answer back was $2000 - 2500.00. I was very surprised and wondered if this is just someone else taking advantage of a family with a person with special needs. ie the cost of wheelchairs priced so ridiculously high.

PS Thank you for providing all the information you do and this fantasic site. My son is staying at a Respite Ctr this week for the first time. It is our first break in fifteen years which is why I finally have the time to sit and read through all the great emails and contact suggestions I receive from Dafna at Kerry's Place for Autism. What would we do without people like you!!!!!

Cost of a Will
by: Graeme Treeby

I think that $2000 is a bit on the high side. However, if a lawyer is paying rent on Bay Street in Toronto, his costs are high and so a higher fee would be needed.

I would think that a simple will with Henson Trust could cost less than $1000.

I have a list of lawyers who may be of assistance to you. Please contact me off this list and I would be pleased to share it with you.
