ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – Gov. Susana Martinez says New Mexico’s annual bench warrant sweep has collected more than $150,000 in unpaid child support this year.

The governor’s office says this year’s bench warrant round up led to 110 arrests with a total of almost $77,000 collected so far.

The bench warrant amnesty period led to the collection of about $73,500 from 183 non-custodial parents.

The total amount of child support collected from the round up so far – combined with collections from the amnesty period – is more than $150,000.

The New Mexico Human Services Department’s Child Support Enforcement Division, New Mexico State Police and local law enforcement partners across the state acted on more than 550 child support warrants during this year’s roundup. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
