Our Family Legal Services

Although many would hope that ending a marriage would be just as easy as starting one, that is usually not the case. The process of divorce involves much more than signing a certificate and sending it to the court. There are several issues to be concerned with, including property division, spousal support, and financial support of any children of the relationship.

At Advanced Legal Resolutions, LLC, we are equipped to guide you through all the legal issues that may arise during your divorce and family law case. Whether your dispute can be resolved peacefully, or you need to fight for a fair outcome in the courtroom, our attorney is committed to making this stressful change as positive as possible.

Attorney Sarah Van Cott has extensive experience assisting clients through complex situations involving:

Child Custody & Support

Often, the toughest types of family cases are those that involve children. Although New Mexico courts usually hold that joint custody is best for children, this does not necessarily mean equal time. While it is possible to arrange for equal time-sharing, the parents or the court may be inclined to make other arrangements. If you believe that joint-custody is not right for your situation, or you need assistance determining a suitable visitation arrangement, get in touch with our attorney today. We can help you pursue an outcome that is right for your family and is in the best interests of your child.

Also, you and your child's other parent are both expected to provide financially for your child. You may wish to seek or be required to pay child support. Whether you are on the receiving or contributing end, we can help you pursue a fair child support arrangement.


Not all family legal disputes need to be decided before a judge. You and the other party may seek an agreement outside the courtroom. This is often done through a process known as mediation. During a mediation appointment, the parties meet with an impartial third-party (the mediator) who will seek to facilitate a peaceful negotiation process. The mediator does not make any decisions about the case. Rather, he or she helps the parties to reach an agreement on their own. If successful, the agreement will be put in writing, signed by each party, and sent into the court for approval.

At Advanced Legal Resolutions, LLC, we can assist you through the mediation process. However, if this method is not an effective way to resolve your dispute, we are prepared to litigate on your behalf in court.
