Mexican Architecture Contract

Mexican Architecture Contracts As American Architect looking to do work in Mexico, I would like to be more familiar with standard contracts used. (Maybe the equilalent to AIA?) Can anyone share experience w/ either 1. A translated standard contract 2. A split/associated contract between a US Architect and a Mexican Architect? I realize that there is no one-fits-all form, but anything related will be helpful. Obviously personal information should be deleted. And anyone w/ personal experience who might have a story to share is welcome to add in.
