Most couples in New Mexico assume they need the help of an attorney when getting divorced. However, it’s possible to represent yourself in court during divorce proceedings, which is a good option for couples invested in working through issues civilly.
- Step 1: Getting Prepared
Divorces look different for everyone. For example, if you’re divorcing with minor children in the home, you’ll need to consider custody and visitation issues. If you and your spouse own property, you’ll need to make considerations about property allocation. Think about the unique details of your situation before moving forward.
- Step 2: Accessing Legal Documents
Once you have a solid divorce outlook, you’ll need to locate the necessary documents for filing. We assist couples in New Mexico in accessing these documents thanks to our easy-to-navigate online divorce process. We’ll ask targeted questions about your situation and use your answers to generate the necessary forms.
- Step 3: Filing Forms
Completed divorce forms will be sent to you via email or they can be accessed on the My Forms Before you actually file your documents, you’ll need to locate your specific district court where the forms must be filed. You can also make changes to forms in the event situations change.
