Division of Assets in Albuquerque, New Mexico
New Mexico is a community property state, meaning that any assets acquired during the marriage are divided equally in the event of divorce. Debts acquired during the marriage also belong to both spouses as well. While courts aim to divide property in a way that is equitable to both parties, it does not necessarily mean your property will be divided equally, particularly if spousal support is at issue.
