Welcome to the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court Jury Division

Thank you for being here to participate in a very important part of our system of justice.

Can I be Excused or Exempted from Jury Duty? Who can be excused from serving?

Yes, if you or someone whom you care for has an extreme mental, physical, or financial hardship, that prevents you from serving as a juror, you may request an excusal and must complete and submit all required forms or information. Please specify your reasons for requesting an excusal and submit the completed forms by the date noted on your Jury Summons. You also must submit a letter from a healthcare provider with any request for excusal for medical reasons. If you have served on a jury in state or Federal Court in the past three (3) years or are seventy-five (75) years of age or older, you may request an exemption from jury service, and must submit the required forms or information. If you are requesting an exemption based on age, you also must submit an Affidavit of Age Request for permanent Jury Exemption. Until you have received notification from the Court, you are not excused or exempted from Jury Duty.
