Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a enchanting and wonderful state, when it comes to wedding events we are a little different. In lots of 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 officials can marry you, they don't. Well let me correct that, they do not truly want to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine top priority. Exactly what will occur is the clerks will offer 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 readily available? Almost 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 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 want to wait? For civil type of events we offer three options.
