Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a enchanting and fantastic state, when it concerns weddings we are a little different. In lots of 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 wed! But, not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they don't. Well let me correct that, they don't really wish to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real concern. What will happen is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, typically 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding event. Notice the if available? Almost anything can trigger a hold-up, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, just 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 actually wait around, and if you are from town do you actually desire to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we offer three options.
