Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
What you need to do in a situation such as this is to file what is called an ancillary probate proceeding in New Mexico to handle the transfer of the property located in New Mexico. An ancillary probate proceeding basically piggy backs off the probate proceeding in Texas to give the executor the authority to access the New Mexico property. You will need to engage an attorney in NM to handle this, but it's a simple process and the cost should be minimal.
