Electronic Filing and Service Available in the Supreme Court

Beginning May 1, 2017, electronic filing and service will be​ ​available for use on a voluntary basis for all new and pending cases in the Supreme Court through the same File and Serve system used in state district courts throughout New Mexico.  Paper filings will continue to be accepted by the Supreme Court until July 1, 2017, at which time use of the electronic filing system for all proceedings in the Supreme Court will become mandatory.  ​To view the Supreme Court order and related rule amendments authorizing electronic filing in the Supreme Court​, please click here.

Unlike in the district court, electronic filing and service will be available in the Supreme Court at no charge.  Payment of the $125 docket fee, however, cannot be accepted through the File and Serve system at this time.  Accordingly, for those cases initiated in the Supreme Court through the File and Serve system for which a docket fee is due, payment must be made by check made payable to the New Mexico Supreme Court and received by the Supreme Court Clerk’s Office no later than 5 days after the case is accepted for filing.  For more information, please see Rule 12-307.2(C) NMRA.

If you are new to the File and Serve system, follow the instructions below for getting started.  After you have complete those steps, or if you are already registered and familiar with the File and Serve system, please click here to watch a video providing information specific to e-filing in the Supreme Court.
