While the attorneys at Terry & deGraauw, P.C. always believe family law matters are better resolved outside of Court, sometimes a divorcing couple attempts mediation and negotiation but cannot reach an agreement. When a couple cannot agree on divorce issues like child custody, spousal support and property division, the case must be argued in Court through divorce litigation.

WHY DO DIVORCE NEGOTIATIONS FAIL?
Several situations may arise that cause your divorce to be litigated in Court. For example, if your case raises an unsettled area of divorce law in New Mexico, it’s very difficult for parties to fashion an agreement through divorce mediation. In other situations, a separated couple simply cannot agree on who gets what during property division, or the best way to divide time spent with their children.
HOW DOES CONTESTED DIVORCE LITIGATION WORK IN NM?
In contested divorce litigation, one spouse begins by filing a divorce action against the other spouse, and each party hires an attorney. Once litigation is started, the divorce litigator (attorney) gathers as much information and documentation as possible to get a clear picture of expenses, assets, income and debts.
Gathering information may include subpoenas upon employers and other third parties to obtain information your ex-spouse refuses to provide. Our divorce litigators are familiar with experts (such as psychologists and accountants) commonly appointed by Court to provide expert testimony in these areas.
Beginning in litigation does not mean your case will end with a trial. While complying with court orders and deadlines, our divorce litigators also continue to attempt to reach an agreement outside of court during the litigation process. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, we are prepared to take your case all the way to trial and will advocate for your best interests with professionalism and compassion.
