Shouldn't it be included in the person's will, something like "maximum fee to settle estate shall not exceed 3 percent".
Or can the executor literally charge half of the remaining estate?
I am expecting my parents will get down below $100,000. It's conceivable that my sister will spend a great portion of that on their airfare & hotel bills.
We have a meeting with the attorney coming up, and I want to know how to make a motion to include language to limit the expenses.
