Mike Walters, the Entertainer’s trusted legal adviser offered more great advice this week on San Diego Living on local Channel 6. Tune in Wednesday mornings for more information.

This week Mike explains the history of Probate and how the process came to be in California.

The original reason for the creation of probate was to protect the assets of immigrants from thieves and debtors. The government decided that it would seize all the deceased’s possessions and distribute it themselves, thus creating the process of probate.

Over time, the process of probate has become expensive and largely unnecessary. Learn more about avoiding probate in the video below.
