Understanding Same-Sex Divorce and Custody in New Mexico

Same-sex married couples who decide to divorce in New Mexico are subjected to the same legal process and same legal authority to which opposite-sex couples are subjected.  Property and debt will be divided according to New Mexico Community Property Law.  Spousal support considerations will assess the financial need of one spouse and the ability of the other spouse to pay.  Child support will be calculated in accordance with the New Mexico Child Support Guidelines.  Custody and Visitation will be determined in keeping with the best interests of the children. 

Unique Challenges in LGBTQ+ Family Law Cases

There are, however, situations that arise in same-sex divorces and in same-sex custody battles that require the representation of an experienced, zealous representative of the LGBTQ+ community. This is especially true when child custody arrangements are being negotiated.  

Protecting Your Rights in Non-Biological Parental Breakups

What happens when a same-sex couple who never married breaks up, and the non-biological parent never signed documents to secure their right to visitation and custody of their child?  Will your attorney listen to your concerns and understand the unique challenges that can arise when same-sex couples end their relationships?
