A Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce) is a legal action between married people to end the marriage. 

A divorce determines how to divide the property and debts of the parties, where the children will live if there are children of the marriage, and who will pay child support and how much that parent must pay.  After two people are divorce, each person is free to marry again.

To obtain a divorce in New Mexico, you or your spouse must have lived in New Mexico for the last six months.  To begin a divorce, you must first file a petition and other papers in the district court in the county where you live or where your spouse lives.  The divorce is not final until the judge signs the Final Decree of Dissolution of Marriage.

It is not necessary that both person agree to end the relationship.  One spouse cannot make the other stay in a relationship.
