Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a fantastic and charming state, when it comes to weddings 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! But, not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me correct that, they don't truly want to. In most counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a real concern. Exactly what will take place is the clerks will offer to put you on a waiting list, generally 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is readily available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if readily available? Practically anything can cause a delay, 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 really wait around, and if you are from town do you actually want to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we provide 3 alternatives.
