PROBATE JUDGE ANNOUNCES MONTH-LONG MEDICAL ABSENCE

Doña Ana County Probate Judge Alice Salcido has announced she will be on medical leave from Thursday, May 14, to Monday, June 15.

Salcido said her assistant, Lydia Chaparro, will keep the office open to update open cases. Salcido said new cases will either have to wait until she returns or be filed in Third Judicial District Court.

Although the Doña Ana County Clerk’s Office will continue to issue marriage licenses, couples wanting to get married by a judge during Salcido’s absence will have to seek assistance from judges in other jurisdictions or wait for her return. A list of judges and ministers within Doña Ana County who perform ceremonies is available at no charge from the Doña Ana County Clerk’s Office upon request.
