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.

This is not a court date. This date indicates that you must make a court date in person at Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court by that date. You should do it before that date or at least within 10 days of receiving the citation. If you do not come in to make a court date, the Metropolitan Court will mail you a notice of hearing with date for your appearance.
