How do I register my protection order in New Mexico?
Take your protection order to the local courthouse. This does not need to be a certified protection order. The court clerk will have you fill out a coversheet. The order is then added to NCIC, if it is not already entered. For more information about NCIC, see the next question.
If you need help registering your protection order, you can contact a local domestic violence organization in New Mexico for assistance. You can find contact information for organizations in your area here on our NM Advocates and Shelters page.
