This probate judge is never in his office! He's out for weeks at a time and it's nearly impossible to get a hold of him. I hope to God he doesn't get re-elected.

So all you have to do to be a probate judge is get elected and go to a seminar? No law degree or college education? Pathetic.

Well put! If you don't have a degree then you should at least have some type of formal education to be any type of judge!

Yes, I completely understand what you're talking about! I needed to file a probate case and Mr. Montes was never around to answer a few questions I had. I finally gave up and filed in district court, which is way more expensive than probate court. But at least I knew that the judges over there would get the job done, as opposed to Mr. Montes. Every time I called his office, I was told that he was "sick" and wouldn't be back for several weeks! And this was not just a one-time incident; it happened on several occasions. I've also heard this same story from other people. I'll never vote for him again.
