Child Support Laws New Mexico

Determining Child Support

At PJ Hartman, Attorney at Law, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I understand protecting your children’s best interests is the most important aspect of your life. During your divorce, it is important your lawyer understands how to protect them from the stresses of litigation, and also understands how to make sure their futures are fairly protected with proper support awards.If you have questions regarding how to obtain a child support award, how to modify your support or anything related to your children, please contact my office online or call 505-247-3335.

Guiding You Through The Child Support Laws

Child support is the obligation of parents to contribute to the well-being and financial health of their children. Each parent is obligated to do this under the law, and New Mexico follows statutory family law guidelines determining the amount each parent will pay. Some factors the law requires a judge to analyze when determining an award include:

  • The income of both parents
  • Medical insurance
  • Work-related day care
  • Educational needs of the child
  • Other child support obligations of each parent
  • The number of children involved
  • Travel expenses
No matter what arises in your situation, I can break down the facts of your case and help explain how these factors will work with the child support laws, and how they will affect your support award.

Receiving A Modification When Circumstances Change

If you have a child support award you wish to modify in New Mexico, I am ready to help. Maybe you have obtained a new job or the other parent has experienced a significant change in his or her income level. Maybe you have incurred large amounts of unexpected expenses. Whatever the reason for your modification needs, I will analyze the situation and give you straightforward answers as to what your chances of success are in front of a judge.
