New Mexico is the proud home to many US military veterans. With Kirtland, Holloman, and Cannon Air force bases along with White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico also hosts a variety of military installations that employ thousands of active duty personnel. In fact, almost 12% of Albuquerque’s population is a current or former service member. That means many New Mexican’s military families have questions about divorce, custody, and child support that can be unique to their profession. While most divorces are governed by state law and local procedures, military divorce might have federal statutes or military regulations that apply. Additionally, things like custody and timeshare can be unique due to deployment factors and assets like military benefits are sometimes divided differently.
