Justice of the Peace Weddings/Civil Weddings

New Mexico Flag

Ah New Mexcio! Such a charming and wonderful 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 don't. Well let me correct that, they do not truly want to. In many counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a real 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 event. Notice the if readily available? Almost anything can trigger a hold-up, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, only to be told the Judge was away on business and could they return in a week?

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