Wills

Below you will find the laws and forms regarding Wills in the State of Kentucky.

Wills

State law requires that wills be admitted for probate in the County District Court. The District Court Judge must then issue an order probating the will. After the will is probated, it must be recorded in the County Clerk's office accompanied by the order appointing the administrator or executor of the estate. The County Clerk's office retains the original copy of the will permanently.

Filing Fee for Wills - $47.00 (regardless of length)
Filing Fee for Order Appointing Administrator or Executor - $46.00

 

Out-Of-County Wills

The County Clerk can record wills probated in another Kentucky county if an attested or certified copy of the will and order of probate from the County Clerk in the county where the will was originally filed is presented (KRS 394.300). A filing fee of $47.00 will be assessed

For more information, please contact a probate attorney.
