Notice of Training for e-Filing in Criminal Cases 

Electronic filing in criminal cases begins Oct. 1 in district courts across New Mexico, and the Judiciary is offering training for attorneys, office managers and support staff. The e-filing system cannot be used to initiate a criminal case, but will be available for subsequent filings in a case. E-filing and service of documents in criminal cases will occur through the File and Serve system that has been used for civil, family and probate filings submitted electronically to courts. Training is available through a webinar on Sept. 20 and Monday through Friday, Sept. 23-27.

The Judiciary’s website provides a calendar with times and dates of the training sessions and additional information about e-filing. In-person training will be provided on Tuesdays, Sept. 24 and Oct 1, at noon in Santa Fe at the Judge Steve Herrera Judicial Complex, 225 Montezuma Ave. The training sessions will be at the Jury Services Division office on the first floor of the courthouse.
