Welcome to The Judicial Branch of New Mexico

The Mission of the New Mexico Judiciary is to protect the rights and liberties of the people of New Mexico guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the State of New Mexico and the United States; to resolve legal disputes fairly; and to ensure access to justice for all.

Adult Guardianship

State law and court rules impose new requirements in guardianship and conservatorship cases beginning on July 1, 2018. New forms must be used by guardians and conservators when submitting a report, inventory, and proof of bonding. The new law and rules also affect who must be given notice, access to court records and hearings throughout a case.

New! Online Dispute Resolution

Online Dispute Resolution is a new, easy-to-use service for resolving debt and money due lawsuits. The online system offers a convenient alternative to appearing in court by allowing parties to negotiate through private online messages from any location with internet access.
