Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a terrific and charming state, when it comes 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 wed! Not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they don't. Well let me remedy that, they don't actually wish to. In many counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a genuine top priority. Exactly what will happen is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, usually 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if readily available? Practically anything can trigger a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, just 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 want to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we provide three alternatives.
