Customer Question

Hi, this question concerns the New Mexico uniform Trust Code, Article 2 Judicial Proceedings, Section 202. Jurisdiction over Trustee and Beneficiary C)This section does not preclude other methods of obtaining jurisdiction over a trustee, beneficiary or other person receiving property from the trust. What exactly does that sentence mean. everybody knows that the court has jurisdiction and this court is the proper venue etc, etc. but what does this mean and where is it or would it be applied? Could it relate to Section 704 c) in any way, shape, or form? This version of the trust code comes Regular/Final Versions/HBO111FV

Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.

It simply means that there may be other situations involving the trust or trustee where the court has the jurisdiction to hear a case.It might be a civil suit against the trust , a creditor having a claim, or other similar situations and the court would have legal authority under New Mexico to hear such a matter and issue a ruling after a hearing on the merits.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
