Parent died intestate with credit card debt

by David
(New Mexico)

My Mother died intestate 10 years ago with credit card debt but had already transferred her assets to me, so I never opened probate. Recently I found assets belonging to her in her name, in order to get it I have to file with the surrogates office and post a bond, can the creditors still go after me 10 years later? how long can a deceased
persons' debt stay collectible?
