Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a charming and wonderful state, when it concerns wedding events we are a little different. In lots of 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! But, not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me remedy that, they don't really want to. In the majority of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a genuine top priority. What will take place is the clerks will offer to put you on a waiting list, typically 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding event. Notice the if readily available? Nearly anything can cause a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, just to be informed the Judge was away on business and could they return in a week?

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