SUPREME COURT FORMS COMMISSION TO RECOMMEND GUARDIANSHIP SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS

 

The New Mexico Supreme Court issued an order on April 6, 2017 forming a 16-member commission to study the state’s guardianship system and recommend improvements.

Members of the commission include representatives from the three branches of government, attorneys with a background in guardianship law, and advocates for the interests of the elderly, disabled and others involved in guardianship proceedings.

Court-appointed guardians make personal and health care decisions for individuals who are incapacitated. Conservators are appointed by a court to manage the financial and possibly the property affairs of an incapacitated person, including those who may have dementia, traumatic brain injuries, a developmental disability or mental illness.

The Supreme Court directed the commission to hold hearings to gather public input, and recommend any necessary changes in court rules, state statutes, funding, administrative practices or other proposals to improve the guardianship system.

The commission is to make an initial status report to the court by Oct. 1, and continue its work until completing a final report and recommendations. For more information click here.
