We have had reports of cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) and demanding that citizens pay money for fines or fees in cases involving relatives. These calls are not valid. New Mexico Courts will never call citizens to ask for payments of any kind.

You should come to the Courthouse at 4th and Lomas NW in Albuquerque to set up a court date. You should bring your citation(s) with you. If you are rescheduling a Traffic Arraignment, you must do so at least 24 hours before your scheduled arraignment. One reschedule will be allowed. If you live 25 miles outside the metro area, you can call Customer Service at 505-841-8151 to change a Traffic Arraignment date ONLY. For other court appearances, such as trials or bond arraignments, you must file a motion with the judge. Motion forms (Motion for Continuance) are available in the Self Help Center of the second floor of the courthouse or online here.
