Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a fantastic and captivating state, when it concerns weddings 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 married! Not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me fix that, they do not really want to. In many counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a real concern. 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 readily available you can have an in chambers wedding event. Notice the if available? Almost anything can cause 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 come back 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 want to wait? For civil type of events we provide three options.
