In New Mexico divorces involving couples with high-value assets, family businesses, or compensation packages, many problems can arise that might put your hard-earned money and assets at risk if not handled properly. If you are considering divorce or your spouse is, you should always contact a New Mexico divorce and family law lawyer who can give you tailored advice to your specific situation. However in general you need to be aware of the following factors:

  • What is a particular asset actually worth?
  • Is there a pre or post-nuptial agreement?
  • Community Property implications
  • Was the asset or business started prior to marriage or incorporated during the marriage?
  • How do we reach assets in a trust and value them?
  • Have both spouses fully and accurately disclosed their income and assets?
  • Should a particular asset, such as stock options be treated as income for maintenance and support purposes, or be regarded instead as marital property subject to division between the spouses?
  • What, if any, are the tax implications?
  • Will the asset have to be sold, and how will that be accomplished?
  • Who gets which assets and which debts 
  • Spousal support (Alimony)
  • Interim Spousal Support
  • Child support

  • There is a family business the spouses own and/or operate.
  • How the business is valued.
  • One spouse’s separate property has been commingled during the marriage with community assets.
