Writing a Will in New Mexico
Drafting and executing a will requires assistance from an experienced probate attorney in order to ensure that the will is valid, and to ensure that your wishes are carried out.
Requirements to a valid will in New Mexico include:
- The will must be in writing.
- The will must be signed by the testator (the person making the will). If the testator is unable to sign, the will may be signed by another individual in the testator's conscious presence and at the testator's direction.
- The signing of the will by the testator must be witnessed by at least two witnesses, each of whom must sign in the presence of the testator and each other after witnessing the signing of the will.
Oral wills are not valid in New Mexico. However, in certain circumstances New Mexico will recognize oral wills that were deemed valid in other states. Given these complexities, it is important to enlist help from an experienced New Mexico probate attorney to ensure your will or trust is valid.
