How Our Divorce Lawyers Can Help You

For those thinking of ending their marriage, there is a lot to know and a lot to consider. The first thing you should be thinking about is what you want your post-divorce life to look like.
 

we often tell our clients to picture what they hope their life will look like after divorcing their current spouse. Just because one dream didn’t turn out the way you expected doesn’t mean you have to give up on all your dreams. Yes, divorce is an ending and a major change in your life. But it’s also a new beginning.

Fault vs. No-Fault Divorce

While all states now allow no-fault divorces, some states, such as Arkansas, also allow residents to file for divorce on fault-based grounds. However, under New Mexico’s statute, the state only allows for no-fault divorces; thus, one only needs to cite “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of the breakdown of the marriage. While the blame is laid at the feet of neither spouse, that doesn’t mean that no-fault divorce is necessarily an uncontested divorce.

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

Fault and no-fault divorces only specify the grounds on which the divorce is initiated. While there are some key differences, a no-fault divorce can still be a contested divorce.
 

In other words, the divorce is adversarial. The two spouses have interests that directly conflict with one another. While all fault-based divorces are contested, a good portion of no-fault divorces are as well.

No matter the specific facts, AMGJ Law is here to help make the process of divorce as tolerable as it can be.  To learn how we can facilitate this process and fight for what is yours, call us at (505) 872-3022 or contact us online to schedule a FREE consultation.
