Child Support-from Chapter 9-Divorce in New Mexico

Whether you will be paying or receiving child support, it is often the subject of much worry. Will you receive enough support to take care of your children? Will you have enough money to live on after you pay your child support? How will you make ends meet?


Most parents want to provide for their children. Today, child-support laws make it possible for parents to have a better understanding of their obligation to support their children. The mechanisms for both payment and receipt of child support are more clearly defined, and help is available for collecting support if it’s not paid.

The New Mexico Child Support Guidelines are fairly straightforward and simple, making it easy to calculate child support in most cases.
Whether you will receive child support depends upon a number of factors. These include each parent’s ability to pay support, how much time your children are living in your household, and what expenses each parent pays on behalf of the children.
