Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a wonderful and enchanting 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 wed! Not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me correct that, they do not really want to. In many counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real top priority. What will take place is the clerks will offer 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? Practically 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 come back in a week?

So exactly what are folks to do? If you are from out of town you can not really wait around, and if you are from town do you truly want to wait? We a have a much better concept. For civil type of events we provide 3 alternatives.
