Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a terrific and enchanting state, when it concerns 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! But, not here.

In many counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine priority. At that time, if a Judge is readily available you can have an in chambers wedding. Practically anything can cause a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, just to be told 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 truly desire to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we offer 3 alternatives.
