Start Your Divorce with Children ($295*) ’s “on your own but not alone” online platform translates the information you provide about your divorce with children into legal forms that are ready to sign and file with your local district court. By giving you the tools and free resources you need to get a divorce without a lawyer, we allow you to save thousands of dollars and stay in control of your family’s future.



How Our System Works

We walk you step-by-step through the process of creating the legal documents you need to file and finalize your divorce. To get started, create your free account. There is no obligation to purchase a service package when you register, but registration does unlock a wealth of free resources and tools, like our divorce and custody calculators.

Step 1: Prepare To complete the online process to generate the legal forms you need to file for divorce, you will need to gather a lot of personal and financial information. Our Divorce Intake Form and Child Custody Intake Form provide a checklist of what you will need when you move on to the next step.
Step 2: Create your documents Click Start Now to launch the online questionnaire. Your responses will be used to automatically customize the divorce and custody papers you need.
Step 3: Print and file Once you submit payment, the forms you need for your divorce with children will be emailed to you. Sign (or get notarized signatures) in the spaces provided and file with your local district court.

At any time during the process you have a question or want legal advice specific to your divorce with children, you may schedule a consultation with an experienced New Mexico family law attorney. Consultations up to 15 minutes are free. (Appointment required.)

What Your Service Package Includes

The Divorce with Children package will create the forms that both parties need to file and finalize your divorce, such as:
