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 many 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! Not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they do not. Well let me fix that, they do not truly wish to. In the majority of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a genuine concern. Exactly what will happen 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 hold-up, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, just to be informed the Judge was away on business and could they come back in a week?

What are folks to do? 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? We a have a better concept. For civil type of ceremonies we offer three alternatives.
