Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a wonderful and captivating 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 officials can marry you, they don't. Well let me correct that, they don't actually want to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a genuine concern. What will occur is the clerks will provide 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 event. Notice the if available? Practically anything can cause a hold-up, 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?

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