Answer

A revocable living trust can vary in cost, depending on the complexity of the estate plan, size of the estate and whether it is for a single person or married couple. Generally, a trust ranges in price from $1,500 to $3,000. This includes all documents required to establish a trust, powers of attorney, both financial and health care related. 

A simple will in California generally ranges in price from $400 to $700. A consultation with an attorney will allow your attorney to determine which type of estate plan is most appropriate and the related cost.
