Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a terrific and enchanting state, when it comes to wedding events we are a little different. In numerous 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 married! Not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they do not. Well let me fix that, they don't really want to. In many counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real top priority. What will happen is the clerks will provide 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 event. Notice the if readily available? Almost anything can trigger a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, only to be told the Judge was away on business and could they come back in a week?

Exactly what are folks to do? If you are from out of town you can not truly wait around, and if you are from town do you really wish to wait? We a have a much better idea. For civil type of ceremonies we offer 3 options.
