Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a enchanting and wonderful 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! Not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they do not. Well let me correct that, they do not truly want to. In most counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a real top priority. What will happen is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, normally 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding event. Notice the if available? Nearly anything can cause a hold-up, 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 really desire to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we offer 3 options.
