Uncontested divorce in New Mexico

Deciding to end their marriage in New Mexico, couples have two options:

  • Initiate a contested divorce. Sometimes it happens that people are just unable to end their marriage in a peaceful way and have to defend their interests in the court. They have to hire lawyers to help them to decide on property division, child custody and support, and alimony. Besides, spouses have to go through multiple divorce proceedings to get a final resolution.
  • File for uncontested dissolution. This option is great for those who managed to reach a consensus on all the dissolution-related issues. The couples in this case do not even necessarily need to hire an attorney to support them in court or prepare documents for them. Besides, an uncontested divorce is usually finalized as soon as the waiting period in NM is over.

Even if an uncontested option works for you, you still have to deal with the documents somehow. There are various divorce forms required for each specific case, and finding them all on your own is quite challenging. Therefore, when searching on your own, you may find outdated or even incorrect forms that will be rejected by the court. In order to avoid such an issue, use OnlineDivorcer.

Our team is proud to have helped thousands of divorcees to end their marriage smoothly and quickly.

If you have decided to complete a divorce on your own without any assistance whatsoever, you have to be aware of the pitfalls of DIY dissolution:

  • First of all, check the following important aspects: 1) whether you and/or your spouse meet the residency requirements of New Mexico; 2) if you and your soon-to-be ex are in a full agreement to qualify for an uncontested divorce.
  • Next, you need to find the official website of NM. You have to search for any divorce-related information and find the dissolution forms that are required specifically for your case. If you have no idea what forms you need to fill in, you need to research this aspect or find someone to give you legal advice on the matter.
  • If you have children, you need to check the following: 1) state guidelines on custody and support; 2) what child-related forms are required; 3) whether you need to attend parenting classes.
  • Answer the questions in the chosen forms. However, do not forget to google parts of questions that you do not understand. Any mistake in the forms will lead to a court rejection.
  • Please be careful with the fields that have to be filled out by the clerk. They should be left blank, same as some fields that are filled out by an attorney if there is any.
  • Finally, check whether you have to take legal classes to learn to represent yourself when on a hearing.
  • Now you can print and start signing the forms. Note that some of the documents might have to be signed in front of notary public.

Getting a divorce in New Mexico with a child

Deciding to end their marriage, divorcees with kids have make a decision on post-divorce arrangements for their children.

  • When parents have come up plan concerning the child custody, a court is likely to approve it as long as it was written with a consideration of what would be best for a kid.
  • Custody is usually determined based on the child’s best interests. The court also considers the following factors: the parent’s wishes, the relationship between parents and the child, and the mental and physical health of each party involved.
  • As in many other states, there are two types of custody: joint and sole; it can be physical and legal. In New Mexico, most divorced parents have joint legal custody, and the child lives with one parent, while the second is granted visitation rights.
  • Even if parents have joint physical custody, it does not mean that the amount of time spent with a child will be equal. It is also required that parents live in close proximity to a school that a kid attends.
  • If the child is over 14 years old, a judge will consider his or her wishes while making a decision.
