Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a terrific and charming state, when it comes to weddings we are a little different. In lots of 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 married! But, not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they don't. Well let me remedy 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 genuine concern. Exactly what will occur is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, usually 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? Almost anything can cause a hold-up, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, only to be informed the Judge was away on business and could they return in a week?

What are folks to do? If you are from out of town you can not really wait, and if you are from town do you truly want to wait? We a have a better concept. For civil type of events we offer 3 options.
