Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a enchanting and fantastic state, when it concerns weddings we are a little different. In many 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 wed! Not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me correct that, they do not actually wish to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine priority. Exactly what will occur is the clerks will offer 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. Notice the if available? Almost anything can cause 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?

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