First, you should understand that there are a lot of misconceptions about a divorce. New Mexico is a “Community Property” state. That means that any assets or debts that were obtained during the marriage will be divided equally. Sometimes, even other property or debts can be included in the “marital community”, even if they were acquired before the marriage. Remember, a divorce is a very emotionally stressful time. The fact is, a divorce is a lot more like getting your taxes done than you might think. There are numerous forms to fill out and time lines to meet with the Court. A skilled negotiator on your behalf is priceless. Most of the issues in a divorce can be negotiated between the parties.
