Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a charming and terrific state, when it pertains to weddings we are a little different. In numerous 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! But, not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me correct that, they don't really wish to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real top priority. Exactly what will occur is the clerks will offer to put you on a waiting list, normally 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is readily available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if available? Nearly anything can cause a hold-up, 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 actually wait around, and if you are from town do you truly desire to wait? For civil type of events we offer 3 options.
