Probate

Probating an estate is the process of asking the court, after your loved one has passed, to allow you to resolve the decedent’s property and debts. The probate process is open to circumstances with and without a Will. During the probate process, the representative of the estate collects and protects the decedent’s property and pays (or denies) bills, taxes, and other claims against or due to the estate. The representative also distributes property according to a Will, or, if no Will exists, according to the New Mexico Probate Code.
