You can also click on the court’s link for the Duties of the Personal Representative brochure for additional information. There are two types of forms for probate. The first type is if there is no will involved and the second is when there is a will.


Due to the difficulty of keeping up with the frequent changes to the links to the New Mexico Supreme Court probate forms, the links to the probate forms will no longer be available through this website.

If you wish, you may still access the forms by going directly to the website described below.

You can access directly the New Mexico Supreme Court probate forms by going to nmsupremecourt.nmcourts.gov and then clicking on the link to the State Courts websites.
