Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a charming and fantastic state, when it pertains to weddings we are a little different. In numerous 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 do not. Well let me correct that, they do not actually wish to. In most counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine concern. Exactly 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. Notice the if available? Practically anything can cause a hold-up, 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 what are folks to do? If you are from out of town you can not truly wait, and if you are from town do you really wish to wait? We a have a better idea. For civil type of events we offer 3 options.
