Getting Started in File and Serve

  1. A CAID number is required for attorneys to use File and Serve (NOTE: this is different than a ​State ​Bar number).  Your CAID number may appear on your bar card near your state bar number​.  The CAID number is a 5-digit number ​-- ​​​with the first two digits corresponding to the year your CAID number​​ was issued​, which may be​ followed by a slash​, and​ ​three more digits​ --​ such as "05/111".  If you have trouble locating your CAID number, please contact the​ ​New Mexico Supreme Court at​ ​505-827-4860 or​ ​ to obtain your CAID number.​  ​Out-of-state attorneys ​seeking to electronically file as a pro hac vice attorney should click here for more information about how to apply for pro hac vice admission with the State Bar.
