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.

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 judgement 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!
