Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah, New Mexico! Such a terrific and charming state, when it comes to 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 wed! But, not here.

In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a genuine concern. At that time, if a Judge is readily available you can have an in chambers wedding. 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 truly wait around, and if you are from town do you really desire to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we offer three alternatives.
