When parents in New Mexico decide it is time to call it quits that is only the beginning of the decision-making process that dissolution requires. Divorcing spouses need to construct a parenting plan that will entail all the facets of their child's life. This does not only include things like school, medical appointments and extracurricular activities but also includes time spent with other family members. The parents of the divorcing spouses will often seek visitation rights, and this can further complicate an already complex family law issue.

Divorcing couples in New Mexico, as well as other states across the nation, should understand that there are many approaches to getting through a divorce, and a collaborative divorce could provide them with a timely and amicable divorce.
