Sandoval County Courthouse is located at 1500 Idalia Road, Building A, Bernalillo, New Mexico 87004. (Major crossroads are NM 528 and Idalia) 

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.
