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.

The docket fee is $125.00 for filing an appeal and $20.00 for filing a motion to dismiss for failure to file a docketing statement. NMSA 1978 §34-5- 6 (2003) There are no other fees required to process the appeal. However, if you want copies of documents, there is a charge.
