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.
