Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a terrific and captivating 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 really want to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine priority. Exactly what will take place is the clerks will offer to put you on a waiting list, usually 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if available? Practically anything can trigger 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?

So what are folks to do? If you are from out of town you can not truly wait, and if you are from town do you really want to wait? We a have a better concept. For civil type of events we offer three alternatives.
