Entering the Building

The Bankruptcy Clerk's Office intake window is open to the public. You may not need to come to the courthouse.  Most transactions can be performed electronically or by mail. A drop box is available at the entrance of the courthouse so customers can drop off pleadings and payments when they do not need to meet with a clerk's office employee.

Customers can contact the Clerk's Office at 505-415-7999 or 866-291-6805.

All visitors to the courthouse must wear a face mask.  See Order Supplementing Administrative Order of the District Court.

This page will be updated regularly during this continually evolving situation.

Signature Requirements

Since the spread of the coronavirus, the Court has received inquiries whether the Court would enter a general order temporarily waiving the requirement to obtain an original signature from debtors for electronic filing. Our local rules do not have that requirement.

At this time the Court is not willing to authorize use of digital signature software programs for the purpose of filing documents that require a person’s signature, nor is /s/ or the person’s name in cursive font sufficient.    

See News and Notices for more information:  /news/signature-requirements

Certified Copy Requests

CM/ECF filers are strongly encouraged to use the docket event "Certified Copy Request" in lieu of the copy request form.  The docket event allows the CM/ECF filer to request the certified copy and pay via pay.gov.
