Carlos N. Martinez's answer If this is a case in New Mexico, the child support enforcement division routinely seeks reimbursement of state funds. If they are claiming that you owe an amount that seems too high, request an audit to ensure their calculations match yours.
Carlos N. Martinez's answer First off, you need to stop posting any sort of incriminating statements on an online forum. Really is going to come down to intent and knowledge of the $20. As to the THC cartridge, depends. Do you have a medical card? Is it expired? If you were in Albuquerque or Santa Fe, possession of up to an oz of cannabis is a civil infraction.
Carlos N. Martinez's answer Absolutely yes if you are the father of the child. Child support depends on how much time the child spends with each parent, plus your gross monthly incomes amongst other factors.
Carlos N. Martinez's answer Yes. Parents are both responsible for providing support to their children. You would need to bring a parentage case against the father, and then request child support at a court hearing
Carlos N. Martinez's answer You can request that the court hold a pretrial conference and request a trial date at the same time. It is customary for courts to send the parties to mediation to see if they can come to some sort of agreement, however if that does in fact fail, then the court generally will set a trial date.

Carlos N. Martinez's answer If I understand the question correctly, you are wondering if your kiddo's father can get custody to get out of paying child support. Your daughter's father can always petition the court for custody. The court looks to what is in the best interest of the child to determine what type of custody and timeshare arrangement should occur.
Carlos N. Martinez's answer It really depends on what you lost custody for in the first place. Most courts in New Mexico are all for reunification, however if custody was lost due to drugs, neglect or abuse, you have a long road ahead of you. It also depends on if CYFD has been involved, whether or not they have substantiated any instances of abuse, whether you are in the family law court or in the Children's court.
Carlos N. Martinez's answer It depends on what type of account you are talking about. If he has put her on a community account, then you could potentially prevent it via a motion to the court, dependent on other surrounding circumstances.
Carlos N. Martinez's answer The general rule in New Mexico is that you are entitled to 50% of all community property. Community property is anything that you've acquired during your marriage. Regarding leaving the home, the general rule is that the status quo must be maintained throughout the proceedings. Since it appears that this home is community property, any proceeds from a sale, or deficiency, should be equally split between both of you.

Kelli Y Allen's answer As long as the will was valid and complied with all legal requirements in the state where it was written (witnesses, notary, etc.), all other states should recognize it as a valid will.
Kelli Y Allen's answer If your mom becomes a naturalized citizen before you turn 18, you will likely derive citizenship from her and would file an N-600. However, if her application is still pending when you turn 18, you will not be eligible for derived citizenship and would need to file your own N-400.
