Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a terrific and enchanting state, when it comes to weddings 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 married! But, not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they do not. Well let me remedy that, they don't actually wish to. In the majority of counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real concern. What will occur is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, typically 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? Nearly anything can trigger a delay, 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 actually want to wait? For civil type of events we offer 3 alternatives.
