Estate Planning Services and Prices

Prices are listed for seniors 60+ who reside in Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia and Torrance counties. SCLO also provides powers of attorney for health care and financial decision making as well as cremation forms for no charge to seniors.

Note: Pursuant to Chapter 134 of the 50th Legislature’s 1st Session, the County Clerk’s office in all New Mexico counties will increase its recording fees to a $25 flat fee for each document recorded. If the document being recorded contains more than ten entries to the county recording index, the county shall collect an additional fee of $25.  If a document contains fewer than ten entries to the county recording index and is recorded in person in the office of the county clerk by one of the interested persons named on the document, the county clerk shall collect a fee of $10.

It is the practice of the Senior Citizens Law Office to record documents prepared by this office; consequently, the recording fee will be $25.
