New Mexico Legal Aid and Family Law issues

Currently  New Mexico Legal Aid only has resources to consider applications for family law legal help for victims of domestic abuse. If you are not the victim of domestic abuse, we will unfortunately not be able to provide any help.


Some other possible ways to get advice about family law issues are:


With the development of COVID, the New Mexico State Bar conducts a Monthly Video Workshop on Divorce

Attendees can learn how to save time, money and stress at the State Bar's free Divorce Options Workshop. The workshop includes a presentation by a volunteer attorney, materials on divorce and an open question-and-answer period. This event is a free community service open to the public. Workshops are held usually on the first Wednesday of each month from 6-8 p.m. Call (505) 797-6022 to register.

A one-time consultation with a private attorney may not cost as much as you think.


If you do not know of an attorney to contact, you could possibly get a low-cost half-hour consultation with a private attorney. NM State Bar General Referral Program may be able to arrange for a one-time half-hour consultation with a private attorney.  They charge an administrative fee of $35.00. You could find more information about this Referral program HERE or call them at 800-876-6227.


You may be able to get some questions answered online by a volunteer attorney through the American Bar Association's Free Legal Answers website -
