Women’s Divorce Lawyer in New Mexico


Helping women with divorce

For the most part, representing a woman through divorce is no different than representing a man. Fairness, honesty, and transparency are and should be the goal regardless of the client’s gender. In many cases, however, there are special concerns that come with women’s divorce. For example, some women find the prospect of divorce daunting due to their lack of job skills or support structure. For some, the prospect of divorce may be so overwhelming they stay in a marriage that is making them unhappy. If this sounds familiar, you need to speak with women’s divorce expert PJ Hartman.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”841″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Concerns in women’s divorce

  • Temporary alimony – also called transitional alimony, this type of support consists of payments while the couple is getting divorced. For women who didn’t work during their marriage, and don’t have the job skills to enter the workforce right away, immediate support during this phase can be crucial.
  • Child support – the amount of support in New Mexico is calculated as a fixed percentage of income, so don’t expect there to be any negotiation of child support. It is important; however, that the couple’s finances are accounted for accurately.
    Spousal support – unlike child support, spousal support in New Mexico is what is known as a discretionary award. This means that the judge has much more freedom to award whatever they see fit for the circumstances.
  • Division of marital property – New Mexico is a community property state, which means that each divorcing spouse is entitled to an equal share of the couple’s assets and property. However, before there can be equal division, there must be accurate accounting. That’s why PJ Hartman works with a team of accountants and other financial specialists.
