Executor Compensation and Fees (PW)Show Table of Contents
If the will does not specify how executor compensation should be calculated, PW estates must follow state compensation rules.
Palau does not have a probate code, so executor compensation is primarily according to Palauan custom. Often executors are family members or close friends who serve for free, but it can be acceptable to charge reasonable compensation as well, typically by number of hours required.
See Palau Consolidated Legislation Title 25 for general information about Estates and Trusts.
See also Compensation for general remarks on executor compensation.
