Guardianship comments sought

Public comment is being taken on the initial recommendations from a state Supreme Court-appointed committee that is studying adult guardianship reform in New Mexico.

The Supreme Court has already approved one of the commission’s recommendations to establish a guardianship and conservatorship rules and forms committee. The court announced this week that it will accept applications through Nov. 10 from attorneys, judges, and nonattorneys who have experience with the New Mexico guardianship system.

The commission’s proposed reforms can be found at the Supreme Court website, supremecourt.nmcourts.gov.

Public comments can be submitted can be submitted electronically at nmcourts.gov/Supreme-Court; click on “what’s new.” For comments in writing by mail, email, or fax:

Joey D. Moya, Clerk

New Mexico Supreme Court

P.O. Box 848

Santa Fe, New Mexico 87504-0848

nmsupremecourtclerk@nmcourts.gov

505 827 4837 (fax)

Comments must be received by the clerk’s office on or before Nov. 8 to be considered by the commission, which is continuing to study other possible reforms for a final report to the Supreme Court expected by the end of the year.

“As the report demonstrates, meaningful reform of the guardianship system will not be easy or inexpensive and cannot be achieved by a single branch of government acting alone. Rather, true change will require the legislature, the executive, and the judiciary to work together in their respective roles to enact the laws, allocate the resources, and implement the changes that are necessary to improve the guardianship system,” the commission report states.
