THE SUPREME COURT OF NEW MEXICO ANNOUNCES
APPROVAL OF NEW AND AMENDED RULES AND FORMS FOR
GUARDIANSHIP AND CONSERVATORSHIP PROCEEDINGS
The Supreme Court has approved new and amended rules and forms for use in guardianship and conservatorship proceedings. The rules and forms take effect on July 1, 2018 and implement and supplement amendments to the Uniform Probate Code (UPC) that take effect on that same date. See N.M. Laws 2018, Ch. 10. The rules and forms uniformly apply to all cases filed on or after July 1, 2018; however, they vary in their application to cases filed before July 1, 2018. Please see the history note to each rule and form for further clarification. Due to the number and length of the rules and forms, the actual text will not be published in the Bar Bulletin before publication in the New Mexico Rules Annotated. The full text of the rules and forms can be viewed now on the New Mexico Compilation Commission’s website. The forms also will be available soon for viewing and downloading at the new guardianship and conservatorship website hosted by the Administrative Office of the Courts, which you may access by clicking here.
