child support and custody

Every child is entitled to the care and support of his or her parents, and no parent should be left without resources to care for their child. Child support in New Mexico is that according to the New Mexico Child support guidelines. A parent may need assistance in calculating support, pursuing support or pursuing payment of support. Support is granted regardless of the marital status of the parents. Unmarried parents are just as responsible for supporting their children as married or divorcing parents. However, issues like paternity may need to be resolved before child support can be pursued.

Parents often need the assistance of attorneys and the court to craft appropriate parenting plans to deal with the custody and care of their children. Sometimes parents are able to negotiate and resolve parenting issues. Other times parents are unable to agree to agree and will request the court settle the matter.
