In New Mexico, the law provides that all property and debts acquired during the marriage are considered community property and are subject to division in a divorce. This means that any assets or debts that you or your spouse accumulated during the marriage, regardless of who earned or incurred them, are considered to be owned equally by both of you.
Spousal support and child support are also big issues to focus on in high net worth divorces in New Mexico. The court will consider a number of factors when determining how to award spousal support, including the length of the marriage, the age and health of each spouse, the earning capacity of each spouse, the standard of living during the marriage, and the financial needs and resources of each spouse. These same factors are also considered when high net worth cases exceed the child support guidelines in statute. This analysis is done under what is called Spingola factors.
