But experiencing a healthy and productive divorce starts with finding the right lawyer and the right divorce process. With offices in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, we’re the first stop on your journey.
What Type of Divorce is Right For You?
Start by educating yourself on the options available to understand what makes the most sense for your specific situation. We provide representation for ALL types of divorces including uncontested divorce, mediated divorce, collaborative divorce, litigated divorce, and limited scope representation.
When spouses are in general agreement about getting a divorce and dividing up assets and debts they may be able to have an uncontested divorce.
In a mediated divorce, one attorney handles the case and acts as a neutral third party in which they provide no legal advice but help both spouses work toward resolution.
Collaborative divorce is a specialized divorce process that is completely controlled by the parties and their attorneys with an upfront agreement to avoid litigation.
Litigation is when your attorney files a petition for divorce and takes it through procedural steps for litigation which may include numerous hearings and possibly a trial.

Family Law in New Mexico
Family law is a broad term that covers many different legal needs but most commonly involves child custody, child support, or spousal support. An experienced family lawyer is a valuable asset for families going through the types of difficulties.
New Mexico Child Custody
We help clients determine the best way to reach a child custody agreement that is beneficial for the family. When our clients understand all of the options available, it increases the chances of them arranging a child custody agreement that best suits the needs of the children.
New Mexico Child Support
In New Mexico, parents have the option of reaching a child support agreement on their own or having it decided by the court. Ideally, the child support obligations of each parent are fairly based on their financial circumstances and adequately cover all of the child’s needs. We represent people who are trying to establish child support or need legal assistance in getting a child support order enforced.
New Mexico Spousal Support
Alimony, also called spousal support, is an amount of money awarded by the court from one spouse to the other as continuing support after the marriage has ended. Under the family laws of New Mexico, alimony or spousal support may be temporary, permanent, or transitional. Alimony or spousal support may also be modifiable or non-modifiable as determined by the Court or by agreement of the parties. Our alimony attorneys can help establish or modify an existing spousal support plan.
Over the years, because of this and because of our extensive knowledge of New Mexico divorce and family law, we have earned the trust of Albuquerque residents in need of legal counsel, as well as clients throughout the state of New Mexico. In the process, New Mexico Legal Group has gained a reputation as an extremely effective legal advocate for divorce and family law clients in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Rio Rancho, Las Cruces, and other cities all over New Mexico.
