Although divorce is an emotionally difficult time, many parties are still willing to cooperate and jointly work out resolutions to their disputes. Cooperative parties may reach mutually agreeable terms through mediation. However, to ensure that their long-term interests are served, parties should retain the counsel of an experienced divorce lawyer.

To some extent, cooperative parties are able to set aside some of their emotions to more quickly and cost-effectively work out the details of the Marital Settlement Agreement. However, emotions can still cloud judgments during family law mediation. A party hoping to reconcile may be motivated to over-compromise. One party may suggest a solution that could cause problems down the road.
An experienced divorce lawyer maintains an objective perspective and evaluates the long-term consequences of compromises suggested during mediation. They will prevent you from giving up property or financial support you may be entitled to under New Mexico divorce laws and help you avoid stalemates over insignificant details.
