About the Family Law Section

Family law, or domestic relations law, is a sensitive area of the law that encompasses matters including divorce, custody, child support and other children’s issues. The Family Law Section of the State Bar of New Mexico serves as a foundation of support for its legal community by being a central location where attorneys may find information and services that will assist them in representing their clients effectively and helps them to build relationships among fellow members.

The Family Law Section of the State Bar of New Mexico also serves the general public who may be seeking legal assistance by providing access to basic information and attorney contact information. The Family Law Section is continually monitoring and sharing the changing nature of our laws so that New Mexicans may be well served by our legal community. 

If you need advice regarding divorce, the Family Law Section takes part in a free monthly virtual Divorce Option Workshop for New Mexico residents. Find more information about the Divorce Options Workshop at:
