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 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 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 Divorce Option Workshop on the first Wednesday of each month at the State Bar Center, 5121 Masthead NE in Albuquerque, from 6-8 p.m.

The Family Law Section recently produced an issue of the New Mexico Lawyer, a quarterly insert in the Bar Bulletin. The issue is titled "Family Law—Changing Rules for Changing Times." Read it here.
