How Does The New Mexico District Court Work?

New Mexico’s District Courts are the general jurisdiction courts present in all 13 districts across the state. These are trial courts with broad jurisdiction over civil and criminal cases beyond the jurisdiction of other low-level courts in the New Mexico Court System. Additionally, the district courts also review criminal appeals of decisions by the Magistrate and Municipal courts.

The court has jurisdiction over criminal cases, including felonies and misdemeanors. It also addresses civil matters with disputes of more than $10,000, domestic relations and violence cases, mental health cases, appeals from administrative agencies, disputes over real estate, contract disputes, tort actions, etc. Each district court in the state has a Children’s Court Division that addresses juvenile delinquency, child abuse or neglect, child adoption, and the emancipation of minors. Generally, the New Mexico district courts have exclusive jurisdiction over domestic relations and juvenile cases.

The District Court Judges are the conservators of peace that preside over criminal and civil cases in the court. These judges ensure that all cases are handled in accordance with the state rules of criminal and civil procedure. To be District Judge in New Mexico, the individual:

  • Must be a state resident for at least three years before assuming the office
  • Must have been engaged in the actual practice of law for at least six years before assuming the position
  • Must reside in the district of appointment or election

The District Court judges are elected in partisan elections to serve six-year terms. To serve subsequent terms, the judge must compete in retention elections and receive affirmative majority votes to remain in office.

Individuals tried for misconduct considered illegal according to state laws are usually charged by the District Attorney. The District Attorney is the Chief Prosecutor of a county or district elected or appointed to represent the state in criminal proceedings. Pursuant to Article 6(VI) and Section 24 of the state constitution, all judicial districts must have one district attorney. The individual must be learned in the law of the state and have been a resident of the state for at least three years to become a District Attorney. Elected district attorneys serve 4-year terms and are also sun\beject to retention elections to serve consequently.

Court records of cases heard in district courts are typically maintained by The New Mexico Courts Judicial Branch. Pursuant to the Inspection of Public Records Act (IPRA), any individual can request and inspect public court records online or in-person using interactive, downloadable forms provided on the website. Inquirers can review court records in-person at the applicable court clerk’s office.
