IMPORTANT NOTICE RECENT CHANGES TO NEW MEXICO PROBATE LAW

Please note that the New Mexico legislature has amended certain aspects of New Mexico probate law effective July 1, 2016.  The New Mexico Supreme Court forms have not yet been updated to reflect these changes.  Your probate case filed on or after July 1, 2016 will, however, be subject to the revised requirements.

The changes are as follows:

  1. NOTICE TO CREDITORS:  If you publish Notice to Creditors, you should file for three successive weeks.  The creditors should be notified that they have to present their claims within four months after the date of first publication.
  1. CLOSING THE ESTATE BY SWORN STATEMENT:

You may not close the estate earlier than six months after the date of your appointment as personal representative. If you have questions about how these changes affect your probate case, I encourage you to seek advice from an attorney.
