Divorce or the end of a partnership, is often an emotionally devastating event that involves contentious issues like property division and debt, child custody and alimony (or spousal support). When you need help resolving disputes, an experienced mediator is an option to consider. Mediation focuses on finding common ground, problem-solving and keeping your private life out of court.

LGBT Family Law Mediation in Albuquerque, New Mexico
For gay and lesbian couples, marriage is not yet legal in New Mexico but the state does recognize domestic partnership agreements and legal same-sex marriages made in other states for the purposes of dissolution or divorce. Family law mediation is an excellent choice for couples to resolve their issues outside of court and in a more cooperative and respectful manner. A third party mediator (Dorene Kuffer) keeps both parties focused on fair “give and take” and dialogue versus contentious debate.
