what is a reasonable fee to just update a will, power of attorney, and living will?

Additional Information:

what is a reasonable fee to just update a will, power of attorney, and living will when you are just changing the name of the executor of each?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

I like to think our legal fees are reasonable, so I will answer your question based on what my firm typically charges for such documents.

An update to a will is typically done through a codicil. We typically charge approximately $125 for a codicil. However, for just changing the name of the executor, we would probably charge approximately $75 to $100 for such a codicil.

Unfortunately, to update a (durable) power of attorney and health care proxy (I assume you mean health care proxy and not living will since a living will is a directive to a doctor so there is no named agent), you will need new documents (even to just change the names of the respective agents). We typically charge approximately $75 for each such document.
