Eviction Stay Frequently Asked Questions

The state Supreme Court has paused evictions for New Mexicans who prove that they are unable to pay rent during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
 
If a landlord begins an eviction proceeding, the renter will receive a summons that notifies them of the lawsuit and explains that they can participate in a hearing before a judge. Court hearings are conducted by video or telephone during the public health emergency, unless the parties ask to appear in person. To stop an eviction, renters must participate in the hearing and provide the judge with evidence of their current inability to pay their rent. 

The summons you receive from the court will give you directions about how to participate in the hearing.
