Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a charming and fantastic 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! But, not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they don't. Well let me fix that, they don't truly want to. In most counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real top priority. What will take place is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, usually 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if readily available? Almost anything can cause a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, only to be informed the Judge was away on business and could they return in a week?

If you are from out of town you can not really wait around, and if you are from town do you truly desire to wait? For civil type of events we offer three options.
