Generally, mornings and midweek are less busy. However, the Domestic Relations Division does stay open through the lunch hour for your convenience.

It is usually best to come to the Domestic Relations Division office. (Please see our address and hours to the left of the page.) However, if you need something basic, such as a certified Marital Settlement Agreement and Final Decree, you may mail your request with the following:

  • Exact full names of both parties
  • Case number and year the case was filed, if at all possible
  • Approximate filing dates for the requested document(s)
  • Self-addressed envelope (business size or larger) with enough postage for two ounces
  • $5 money order or cashier’s check made payable to the Clerk of the Court

There is no difference. All DR cases were converted to DM in 1997 to allow consistent reporting throughout the state.

It is in your best interest to work with a licensed attorney. However, if your case is simple, you may wish to do the research and prepare your own paperwork, download certain forms or purchase certain forms from the Court. Please understand, however, that the clerks and Judge’s staff, by law, are not permitted to dispense legal advice or analysis. For legal advice, always consult a licensed N.M. attorney.

Payments allowed are cash, money order, or cashier’s check made payable to the Clerk of the Court.

Court clerks are prohibited from dispensing legal advice in any manner. Certain forms and limited assistance in procedures are available from theSelf Help or Domestic Violence Divisions.
