Civil Court cases involve disputes between individuals, businesses, or state or local government.

These disputes can involve automobiles or other accidents, personal injury or property damage, medical malpractice, breach of contract, landlord-tenant relations, real estate or other property rights, student loans, taxes and violations of, or objections to, state or local ordinances or other regulations, or appeals from Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court cases. Other cases involve administrative matters such as name changes, driver’s license restoration following DWI rehabilitation, probate or administration of estates of deceased persons (with or without a will), and guardianship/conservatorships of minors or incapacitated adults.
