Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a terrific and enchanting state, when it comes to weddings we are a little different. In lots of 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 wed! But, not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they do not. Well let me fix that, they do not actually want to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a real concern. What will occur is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, generally 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is readily available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if readily available? Nearly anything can trigger 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 return in a week?

What are folks to do? If you are from out of town you can not truly wait, and if you are from town do you really want to wait? We a have a much better idea. For civil type of ceremonies we provide three options.
