Have you been contacted by a person claiming to be a court employee who states that you are not in compliance with an order of the court because you missed a court date or did not pay? Keep yourself safe from cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) who demand payment!  Anyone who receives a suspicious phone call should hang up and verify the status of their case using the NMCourts Case Lookup tool.  You can also contact the court directly or call court customer service at: 855-268-7804.  Remember: you can always see a Judge to address your outstanding issues.

Proposed Text Documents

Proposed Text documents are documents that need to be reviewed and signed by the judge.  In the Metropolitan Court, proposed documents must be identified by a party’s attorney as “proposed,” and they must be filed by the party’s attorney through File & Serve.

Proposed Text documents are not to be sent directly to the Judge or emailed to the Metropolitan Court.  Any proposed document that is adopted or modified, and signed by the Judge will be electronically filed by the Metropolitan Court and served on the parties as required by the Rules of Civil Procedure.
