What Bo Knows

Community Property Laws in New Mexico

One of the most potentially problematic aspects of a divorce is dividing the property: determining who gets what. You may already be aware that New Mexico is a community property state, which means that any community property must be divided equitably upon dissolution of the marriage. However, you may not have a clear idea of just what that means, especially in terms of YOUR property. The attorneys at Frazier Law Office can help you sort out this particularly painful area to help achieve the fairest, most equitable division of property possible.

How to Survive Divorce

Going through a divorce is tough. Whether your soon to be ex-spouse initiated the split or you did, you will experience profound pain. And while you may not believe it now, there is life after divorce. You will survive your divorce. That’s a promise. There are ways to help you begin your new life under the most favorable circumstances possible.

Why a Prenup is Important

When you say, “I do,” you expect your marriage to last forever. Nobody wants to plan for a future that doesn’t involve that special someone, but sometimes it doesn’t work out, and you want to make sure you’re protected. Having a prenuptial agreement can be a lifesaver if your marriage falls apart.

Resources for Single Parents

After a divorce, it’s common to feel a little out of sorts. It can be a new beginning, but reigniting your social life or creating a new social circle can be a little stressful.

There are many great resources out there for single parents that can help you and your kids get your social lives back on track after a divorce or separation. Here’s an overview of a few:

Will Troubles?

A probate dispute can be a difficult time, especially because family relationships can sometimes end up on the rocks when a will is involved. It can also be an emotional and complicated process to navigate, and you need someone with knowledge and experience to help you resolve the situation.

When Mediation Fails

Mediation is a technique for resolving disputes in which a trained mediator sits down with both parties to a conflict and tries to help those parties work out a deal. During a divorce, many people first choose mediation to try and resolve their issues. More often than not, mediation works well, and both sides can come to an agreement. But there are many myths about what mediation can and can’t do for you. Here are some important things to understand about the mediation process:

Injured? Need Service?

Accidents can happen anywhere — whether it’s a car crash, workplace accident, medical malpractice, or other mishap — and instantly change your life. Where negligence is involved, or someone is at fault, it can be important to have the right expert to guide you through the process.

How to Talk to Your Kids About Divorce

Divorce is a complicated and emotional time. No matter what feelings you have toward your former spouse, you want what’s best for your kids. How you talk to them about the divorce plays an important part in helping them cope with it.

See what our clients have to say:

From Joann:

"All members of this law practice were well informed and very kind and considerate to me during the very emotional and complex process of dissolving my 34 year marriage. They understood the intricacies of dealing with challenging manipulations by opposing counsel who was led by my spouse's lack of follow through regarding the home property. At all times, I was treated with the utmost respect whenever I contacted the office no matter my emotional condition. This law practice was warm and supportive during moments of tricky litigation regarding our pension equalization. They kept in contact with me even when I was out of town so that we could file motions in a timely manner. They advised me appropriately when I wanted to seek more, understanding from experience that certain offers were adequately appropriate. In follow up, they were family oriented and shared their family events when I shared mine. I have referred close family friends in need of family law services and have been thanked by these friends for the quick and knowledgeable resolution of their problems. I will gladly refer other friends and acquaintances to this law practice. They were able to attend to both the younger family with minor age children and the more mature couple with pensions resolving all conflicts in favor of their clients.
 
This law practice KNOWS family law!"
 
From Linda:
 

"Our daughter hired Bo Frazier as her attorney in a long drawn out 4 year divorce, and anytime I called or emailed them, their response was within a day. We live in Hobbs, and the firm is in Alb. but it didn’t matter, things were addressed quickly.

If you want an excellent firm to fight for you, choose Frazier Law Firm."
