How do I request an excusal from Jury Service?

Prospective jurors otherwise eligible to serve may be excused from jury service only for extreme hardship and severe medical issues. All requests must be submitted to the Jury Management Division in writing prior to the prospective juror’s service date as explained on the juror Questionnaire.  The request for excusal, along with required documentation, may be faxed to us at 505-841-6769, or e-mailed to us at, or mailed to us: Jury Management Division, P.O. Box 488, Albuquerque, NM 87103. Until you have received notification from the Court, you are not excused. A prospective juror may be excused if he/she:

  • Has a physical or mental disability that would prevent him/her from service. The prospective juror is required to provide a doctor’s note (on the doctor’s letterhead or prescription pad) attesting to the disability.
  • Must provide actual and necessary care for another, and alternate arrangements are not feasible. A doctor’s note (on the doctor’s letterhead or prescription pad) is required attesting to this situation.
  • Is serving on “Active Duty” with the military and is not stationed in the county. A letter from the prospective juror’s superior officer so stating is required.
  • Is over the age of 75, and provides an notarized affidavit attesting to this fact. Click here for a copy of this document for you to fill out.

Please note that we cannot process requests for excusals by phone.
