Understanding New Mexico’s Domestic Violence Laws

The state of New Mexico defines “domestic violence” as any of the following involving one household member committing an action against the other:

New Mexico law defines “household member” as a spouse, family member, or a person with whom the alleged attacker has an ongoing personal relationship. The prosecution must also prove that a defendant “intentionally or knowingly” caused harm to an intimate partner, meaning they cannot convict a defendant due to an accidental or self-inflicted injury. Based on domestic violence’s unique definition, your attorney can use several defenses to avoid a conviction

The Consequences of Conviction

New Mexico courts can inflict strict sentences based on the details of your case. Domestic violence can be a misdemeanor or a felony. The court may approve a restraining order on behalf of the alleged victim and even change your custody arrangements if you have children with the alleged victim. This does not even account for the harm to your reputation.

With regard to criminal penalties, a domestic violence conviction can lead to:

In addition, the courts may impose probation and post-release supervision, force the defendant to attend domestic violence classes, and fulfill other conditions.

Domestic Violence is an Alarming Crime and Public Health Problem in our Albuquerque

It stands as a pressing, spanning our nation and community, leaving profound impacts on individuals and society. This pervasive issue, seen locally and globally, finds roots in various forms of discrimination—be it racism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, or other biases—making safety elusive for many victims.

Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, Albuquerque witnessed an 8% surge in domestic violence cases, notably involving incidents of strangulation. Shockingly, up to 20% of homicides in 2021 were linked to domestic violence, as per the Albuquerque Police Department.

The statistics paint a grim reality: A 2015 report from the New Mexico Coalition of Sexual Assault Program revealed that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men in New Mexico experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Regrettably, it remains the primary cause of injury to women, as highlighted by the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Furthermore, a study by Futures Without Violence underscores the interconnectedness of abuse, showing that childhood physical abuse significantly amplifies the likelihood of future victimization for women and future perpetration of abuse by men, more than doubling the risk.

Tragically, the veil of silence shrouds this issue, with only 1 out of 10 domestic violence incidents ever reported, as noted by S.A.F.E. House.
