  • Divorce in New Mexico by Sandra Morgan Little, Jan Gilman-Tepper, Roberta S. Batley, and Tiffany Oliver Leigh

Written by our very own Roberta S. Batley and retired partners, Sandra Morgan Little and Jan Gilman-Tepper, this book serves as a guide to the legal processes in New Mexico. Turning to friends or the internet for advice during a divorce can sometimes be misleading. This book provides accurate information and addresses the specific laws in our state.

Known to be well-liked by both men and women, Crazy Time, dives into “the turmoil of divorce and forging new and richer lives”. Abigail Trafford works through the different stages of marriage and divorce and guides you to look beyond your Marital Settlement Agreement. This book is based both on personal experience as well as extensive research. The author guides the reader through the emotional journey of divorce providing helpful advice and insights along the way.

The attorneys at Batley Family Law, P.A. are trained, collaborative attorneys.  What does that mean for you and your case?  This book delves into the groundbreaking method many people are using to end their marriages.  This approach allows parties to commit to settling matters out of court and works towards creating a plan that works for you and your family.
