Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a enchanting and fantastic state, when it pertains to wedding events we are a little different. In lots of places you go to the county court house get your license, ask to see a Judge or Justice of the Peace and Voila you are married! Not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they don't. Well let me remedy that, they don't truly want to. In the majority of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine top priority. What will happen is the clerks will offer to put you on a waiting list, generally 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding event. Notice the if available? Nearly anything can cause a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, only to be informed the Judge was away on business and could they come back in a week?

If you are from out of town you can not really wait around, and if you are from town do you truly desire to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we provide 3 options.
