We have had reports of cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) and demanding that citizens pay money for fines or fees in cases involving relatives. These calls are not valid. New Mexico Courts will never call citizens to ask for payments of any kind.

Please call our Wedding Hotline at (505) 841-8104 for more information. There will be a recorded message giving you basic information, plus the names and phone numbers of the judges who perform weddings. The Court does not charge for weddings, but you must bring your own witnesses. Witnesses must be at least 18 years of age. You must also bring a wedding license, which you may obtain at a New Mexico county clerk’s office. To contact the Bernalillo County Clerk, call 505-468-1243. The Bernalillo County Clerk has recently installed an online wedding application you may fill out here

On Valentine’s Day, the Metropolitan Court converts its 9th floor into “Wedding Central.”  Our judges perform dozens of weddings on February 14th, so it’s a good idea to make an appointment in advance if you wish to get married on that day.
