The Court Clinic has been providing services in the Second Judicial District Court for 30 years.

Theresa Miller, Ph.D., is the Court Clinic Director, which is staffed by licensed mental health professionals that conduct court ordered services ranging from mediation to advisory consultation.  The services assist parents and the Court in determining custody and timesharing in the best interests of children.


Court Clinic services are available only by court order.  Parties may request mediation services by completing a Court Clinic Referral Order (CCRO) and submitting it to their judge for approval.


Court Clinic services are free except for Advisory Consultations.  Advisory Consultations are subject to a fee on a sliding scale.



Pursuant to NMSA 1978 §40-12-3(F), "Mediation" means a confidential process in which parties meet with a Clinician in order to assist the parties in focusing on the needs of the children and to assist in reaching a mutually acceptable parenting plan regarding the children.

On-Call Consultation
