New Mexico Divorce Law
New Mexico is a “no-fault” state, meaning that a couple wishing to divorce do not have to meet any “grounds” in order to be granted a divorce. You can obtain a divorce without proving the other person did something bad.
What makes New Mexico divorce laws unique? Unlike many states, there are no waiting requirements from when you file a petition to when the divorce is finalized. In other words, as soon as the court can take your case, you have the potential to be granted a divorce.
Collaborative Divorce Lawyer
Divorce is never an easy process because the life you once shared with someone else is coming to an end. It’s important to hire a divorce lawyer who can guide you through this experience with compassion and efficiency. As a divorce attorney, Dorene has helped thousands of couples with their divorces both inside and outside the courtroom.
As part of her commitment to operating a child-centered family law firm, and to facilitating amicable divorces, Dorene recommends collaborative divorce whenever possible. Collaborative divorce is an option when both parties are willing to amicably work through the process in a way that focuses on the needs of the family. Unfortunately, collaborative divorce is not always a viable option. When it is not, Dorene is equally prepared to fight your case in court.
