Attorney Thomas B. Burton explains what percentage of your estate your Personal Representative (the person in charge of administering your estate after your death) is entitled to receive as a fee for their services under Wisconsin Law. A Personal Representative is the person you choose in your Will to administer your estate after your death. If you die without a Will and a probate is necessary, the Court will appoint someone to act as Personal Representative for you. If you have a Trust based plan, the person in charge of administering your estate is called your Trustee. If you use a Trust based plan, you can select your Trustee, and also choose how much or how little to pay them according to the terms of your private trust agreement.
