How long before a missing New Mexico person is declared legally dead?
National standards in the United States and the UK provide that a person must be missing for seven years before they can be declared legally dead. However, some US states have shortened that period.

Mexico; as Texas had been a state of Mexico before it declared independence in 1836 because of this it's annexation into the US in 1848 meant that Mexico wouldn't be able to recover Texas.
