The Bernalillo County Metropolitan Self Help Center helps people who wish to represent themselves in small claims cases and landlord/tenant disputes.
Self-Help also maintains a community and legal resource list to help customers find additional assistance.
The Self Help Center staff are not attorneys and CANNOT provide you with legal advice. They will, however provide general information on procedures and assistance with forms.
Disclaimer: The following forms are based on forms created by the New Mexico Supreme Court. Both the forms and Pamphlets are general in nature and not designed to give legal advice.

Therefore, The Metropolitan Court does not guarantee that these forms are either accurate or up-to-date nor does the Court assume any legal liability or responsibility for your use of these forms and Pamphlets. As there are legal consequences to any forms, which you may file with the Court, you may wish to seek the advice and assistance of an attorney before using or filing any of these forms.
Please remember these pamphlets are general in nature and are not designed to give legal advice. This Court does not guarantee the legal sufficiency of these pamphlets or that they meet your specific needs.
