    Frequently Asked Questions For Probate & Estates

    What are the most common reasons for hiring an estate lawyer?

    The most common reason that one would retain an estate lawyer is the lack of understanding the average person has when it comes to taking their will through the legal system an attaining the assets they inherited. This means that even if the will itself was written and planned by an actual attorney, that legal representative may not be around for whatever reason at the time of death when one needs to “process” or probate a will.

    What Is The Difference Between Estate Planning & Probate?

    Estate Planning refers to the process of laying out a strategy while one is still alive to ensure they have an adequate will, inheritance plan and long-term healthcare. Probate on the other hand is the legal process after a death required to legally claim any part of a loved ones estate whether a will was left behind or not. The Law Offices of Roman Aminov helps Queens, NY residents with both of these critical life changing legal processes.

    What is the Difference Between Probate and Estate Administration?

    Probate is the process of having a last will and testament of a decedent admitted to the Surrogate’s Court. Administration is the process of having the next of kin appointed to administer the estate of a decedent who died without a will, also called dying intestate.

    How Much Does an probate Estate Lawyer in NYC Charge?

    Many estate attorneys charge a flat fee for their work, especially for straightforward matters, while others charge hourly for their time. It is best to find out all of the different payment options an attorney can offer you before you proceed.

    What Do I Need to Probate a Will?

    You need the original will and a death certificate to begin the process. Your estate attorney will prepare the other necessary paperwork for you to review and sign. Typical documents required in the probate of a will are a petition, waivers, citations, affidavits of comparison, and notices of mailing, among others.

    What is the Difference Between a Will and Estate Planning?

    Estate planning is the process of making sure that your assets pass to your loved ones in an organized and efficient way. There are many tools that can be used to accomplish that goal such as trusts, beneficiary designations, TOD and POD accounts and, of course, wills,among others. A will is an important tool used in the process of planning an estate and is one crucial part of a bigger plan.

    Is a Trust Better than a Will?

    A will requires a court process known as probate if there are assets left in your name without beneficiaries. A trust allows you to avoid probate entirely, thereby saving your family months of time and thousands of dollars. A trust is an important tool used to avoid probate and therefore should be discussed with your estate planning attorney to see if will benefit you and your family in the future.

      There’s only one word that defines Roman Aminov as a professional and a human being – excellence. He is a brilliant, highly knowledgeable and professional estate attorney–at-law with a golden heart. He specializes in Elder Care issues and we came to see him to elaborate such important to us documents as wills, Powers of Attorney and Health Care POAs. We couldn’t have made a better choice! Mr. Aminov was with us every step of the process, patiently listening and explaining to us every issue of our concern, working with us in an invariably relaxed and stress free environment. There has never been a moment of tension or rush, and at all times we’ve been getting from him completely undivided attention. Mr. Aminov and his equally caring and competent staff would be always available for whatever questions that would arise during this exercise. Our emails and phone calls were promptly answered without delays and Mr. Aminov’ advices proved to be invaluable and to the point. Our experience with Roman (as we ended up addressing him since he quickly became much more than an attorney - our trusted friend) was highly satisfactory and we whole-heartedly recommend his services to anyone seeking up-to-date and highly professional help in this field. We keep him in high esteem and respect and it’s imperative to acknowledge that he shows genuine concern/care about his clients making it, rather than pure financial considerations, his main priority. We’re profoundly grateful to you, Roman, for your truly professional and at the same time friendly and caring attitude and for giving us much needed peace of mind at this stage of our life. From the bottom of our hearts we wish you and your loved ones only the best for now and always.

      I was in need of a probate lawyer and after searching the internet for someone in Queens, Roman Aminov name came up several times and all the reviews were very good. I used his services to probate my mom's will and also to do a title change on a house. He is very good, takes the time to explain the pro's and con's of things and has your best interest in mind. In the future if I need any additional "Lawyer" things I would definitely use him again.

      I recently had a will drawn up by Roman. I highly recommend using Roman for any estate planning. He explained everything in detail and spent as much time as needed. I wouldn't hesitate to use him for any services in his field.
    • Alterra Sagi

      I called Roman Amino with questions regarding all of the above in my title. Mr Amino took the time to explain all my options and email me information. His staff was very courteous and professional. At the time of signing all my documents, Mr Aminov had no problems reading through each line with me and carefully explaining what everything meant and entailed. In a world where everyone is always in such a rush, I can appreciate how Mr Aminov took his time learning about my needs and fulfilling them so that I may have peace of mind. I have the highest opinion of Roman Amino and his ability to do his job in such an excellent manner.
    • Debbie Rose

      My experience with Roman Aminov and his firm was AMAZING. My Father passed away in October and I needed Letters of Administration. I went to the court myself and all the paperwork they handed me was a little overwhelming. I contacted Roman and met with him SAME DAY, around 6:30pm. With speed and efficiency I spoke with his assistant, Sarah numerous times throughout the week to make sure everything was in. A week later my paper work was ready to be sent. I was warned that it could take between 2 to 3 months. A little over a month later...I have my letters in hand. AMAZING! Best decision I made was to contact Roman Aminov!
    • harda Jacobs

      Going thru this process seemed daunting at first. Not knowing what to expect or how to go about it. Mr. Aminov and his staff were professional, courteous and hospitable. I would highly recommend Mr. Aminov and his services. He was always quick to respond to my calls and emails and was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. Use him. You won't be sorry.
    • Suni Richard

      Have you ever had to sell a home previously own by a now deceased relative while maintaining the relationships between family members who are also beneficiaries? I didn’t realize just how stressful that could be before taking on the responsibility of being the executor of my mother’s estate.

      This is why I am thankful for and to The Law Offices of Roman Aminov. His patience and professionalism, understanding and kindness and even constructive refocusing were exactly what I needed to get through the probate process and the sale of my mother’s property. He was considerate of my needs and took, what I felt, was great personal care in my well being, both emotional and financial.

      I had a very pleasant experience and I owe that to Roman and his team. I would recommend The Law Offices of Roman Aminov ten times over.
    • Barbara Levine

      My experience with Roman Aminov was excellent. He helped me organize my aunt's estate at a very difficult time and brought my family successfully through the probate process. He was VERY responsive to my questions and he always kept me aware of the status and progress of my case.
    • Kat Lering

      Roman was hired after my initial attorney failed to produce fairly simple estate related petition. He was, from beginning to end, responsive and always available to answer all questions I had about the process. He was also very patient when I was getting worried that the process was taking longer than I expected. He clearly explained that the process takes couple of months to be completed.
    • Kim Rogers

      Mr. Aminov walked me and my spouse through a complete estate plan while explaining all of our options in the process. He genuinely cared about us and kept us informed and involved in the process. I am grateful for his assistance and am extremely impressed with the high level of knowledge he has in the field as well as his ability to convey that knowledge to us in caring manner. Thank you for all your help!
    • Stacy Lenners

      Roman handled preparing a will, revocable trust, power of attorney, health care proxy and disposition of remains for me .(should my health care proxy wishes fail). He is concerned and considerate and takes the time to explain and make suggestions to best handle and provide for his clients. My love and thanks to him.
    • Fabian Jonson

      I was recommended to Roman from a close friend of mine to complete my will. Myself and my wife are very selective when choosing professionals to deal with because we want to choose someone who has passion for what they do, trustworthy and is well versed in their field. . I can tell you that when choosing a lawyer- Roman was the right choice for us.

    • Kevin Jacobson

      I contacted Mr. Aminov after reading positive reviews about his practice. During the initial phone consultation I explained to him what I wanted to have done and he gave me general advice about the documents I might want to consider. His description of my options were presented in a way that was easy to understand. After the phone consultation he emailed to me articles he wrote explaining in more detail the documents we discussed which was helpful.

      I decided to hire him. I met him at his office and reviewed my options. After reviewing my estate planning needs we decided together on a plan to meet those needs. He was knowledgeable and patient. He made sure I understood the documents we would use.

      I would recommend him to anyone looking for an Estate Planning, Probate or Elder Law Attorney.
    • Mario Celi

      I initially contacted Roman Aminov to discuss preparation of wills, durable Power of Attorney documents and Health Care POAs for my parents. It was such a profoundly positive experience that I recently had Roman prepare my will as well. Roman is a consummate professional and a competent young estate attorney. If you meet with Roman you’ll find that he’s not solely driven by money like many other attorneys, but he truly cares about your situation and is passionate about his work. He returns all emails and calls promptly and clearly believes in offering quality service to his clients. He is never condescending or dismissive of a client’s questions. Most importantly he listens attentively to all one’s concerns and specifically explains all estate planning options to ensure your estate plan is formulated in a way that works to limit future hurdles for you and your loved ones. Roman has my highest recommendation.
