Typically, contested divorces or contested custody cases call for a hearing so that the matter may be heard before a judge. During the hearing, questions will be asked by one party to the other and vice versa. Oftentimes attorneys will ask precise questions in order to prove or disprove the close relationship between parents and children. It is a general expectation that a primary caregiver knows various aspects of their child’s life including medical and school information. When going before a judge in a courtroom, you will be asked a number of questions regarding your relationship with the child you are attempting to gain custody of. Parents are trying to earn the right to care for their child, and each parent thinks that he/she is the most fit to do so. In many custody cases, you will most likely need to settle disputes in court. Our experienced family law attorneys are ready to represent you in your New Mexico custody case.
