Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a fantastic and enchanting state, when it comes to wedding events 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 authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me remedy that, they do not truly want to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real concern. What will take place 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. Notice the if readily available? Practically anything can trigger 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?

If you are from out of town you can not really wait around, and if you are from town do you truly want to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we provide three options.
