You may look at child support as your best friend or your worst enemy, depending which side of the equation you’re on.

The lawyers at Sandia Family Law look at child support from the perspective of all those involved.
Should You Hire An Attorney For Child Support In NM?
In New Mexico, child support is determined using child support guidelines, which are established by the legislature and revised periodically. The court calculates support using a set formula, and not just a number the child's parents think is "fair." You should contact an experienced family law attorney for help about the guidelines and calculating child support.
How Child Support Can Be Adjusted
If child support has already been established and you are hoping to modify it, you will need to show the court a ‘substantial change of circumstances’ in order to compel the court to modify the support. This may include a new rate of pay, job loss, the emancipation of a child, a change in insurance benefits or school or day care costs. On the other hand, you and your former partner may simply agree to modify the support.
An Albuquerque attorney can help you navigate the modification process.
New Mexico Child Support Laws
In New Mexico, Child Support Worksheets are required by law before the judge can finalize a divorce decree or parenting plan.
