Ute Park is an unincorporated community in Colfax County, New Mexico, United States. It was formerly part of the Maxwell Land Grant. Ute Park lies on U.S. Route 64 between Cimarron and Eagle Nest, New Mexico, just east of Cimarron Canyon State Park. In 1921, the Guide to New Mexico described it as: Ute Park was named for the Ute Indians, who lived on the east slope of near-by Mt. Baldy. The rebellious Ute resisted their white oppressors, and an Indian Agency and military force were maintained at Cimarron to keep them subdued, until they were finally moved to a reservation in southern Colorado and Utah. The village of Ute Park, opposite the mouth of Ute Creek, is the terminus of an A.T. &S.F. railway branch and is a distributing point for freight for Moreno Valley, Red River and Taos.

What is estate planning and probate law?

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. Estate planning attorneys advise clients on their options for disposition of real and personal property after death, and create any number of necessary documents pertaining to the estate and finances of the client -- including wills and trusts. Estate planning law attorneys also assist clients in setting out their end-of-life health care wishes through living wills and health care powers of attorney.
