About LGBTQ+ Divorce
Whether you were married in New Mexico, in another state, or in another country that allows same-sex marriage, you can get a divorce in New Mexico. LGBTQ+ marriages are covered by New Mexico domestic relations law.
However, recent court decisions implied that domestic partnerships and civil unions made in other states are not covered by the same law.
Since various laws apply to different types of relationships, it is important for LGBTQ+ couples to seek advice from an experienced same-sex divorce attorney to help protect their rights and divide assets fairly.
