Who inherits the estate in New Mexico? Get the answer with a few clicks:
Find out who will receive any person’s intestate estate and how much of that estate each heir will receive.
The New Mexico Intestacy Evaluator℠ uses New Mexico’s Statutes to first determine the legal heirs or next of kin for any person’s intestate estate, then to determine the legal distribution of that estate among those heirs. The deceased’s community property is considered when determining the share of the surviving spouse and the examination of the living descendants of up to two predeceased spouses is considered.
User provided data is evaluated by referencing New Mexico’s Uniform Probate Code to examine each potential level of relation for a qualified heir through the last eligible level of relation before escheat.
Each user response is evaluated in comparison with the applicable intestate laws and all prior responses to determine the most relevant information that must be solicited next to determine the legal heirs of the current estate, as well as the dollar value that each heir is entitled to receive.
