Welcome to the Sandoval County Juror Update

Today is Friday, December 2, 2016 at  9:30 am

Sandoval County Courthouse is located at 1500 Idalia Road, Building A, Bernalillo, New Mexico 87004. 

The major crossroads to access the courthouse are NM 528 and Idalia.   Proceed 1 block west on Idalia to Camino Encantadas.  Continue to the next immediate right which is the Health Commons Road.  This will bring you to the Sandoval County Building Complex.  The courthouse is located on the right side in the Sandoval County Judicial Complex building. Please follow traffic flow signs upon entering the parking lot.   


In case of inclement weather:
Please tune in to your local television stations for delay or closure information for the Sandoval County District Court.  Our Court follows the Rio Rancho Public Schools.  If there is a delay, please report when the Court opens if you are instructed to report on that date.  

If you are coming from the Jemez or Cuba areas, we understand that you have very different weather than in Rio Rancho, please use your best judgment and notify the Court if you are unable to safely make the trip if you are scheduled to report on that date.  Your safety is our priority.
