Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a captivating and terrific state, when it comes to wedding events we are a little different. In numerous locations 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! But, not here.

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

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