Know Your Rights And Protect Them In Divorce

Divorce, legal separation and the dissolution of a civil union in New Hampshire include all of the same resolutions. The termination of a legal relationship results in the distribution of real and personal property, financial assets, debts and obligations of the parties.

New Hampshire courts require parties to divide assets and financial liabilities that were acquired or accrued during the time that the parties were married equitably. This means property will be divided in a means that is deemed fair but not necessarily equal. If the parties cannot reach agreement on property division outside of court, New Hampshire law calls for consideration of a number of factors to help make the decision. These include the length of the marriage, the employability of both parties, both parties' financial resources and other factors.

Our Experience Makes A Difference

The experienced family law attorneys at Martin, Lord & Osman, P.A., will protect your interests as you navigate the complexities of divorce or the end of a nonmarital relationship. In addition to dividing assets and debt, parties must reach agreement regarding custody and a parenting plan, child support, spousal support and other important issues.

If you and your spouse are unable to reach agreement through negotiations or arbitration, the court will make decisions based on a number of factors.

The difference between divorce and legal separation relates only to the legal status of the parties after the case is finalized. Someone who is legally separated with a decree that otherwise resolves every property and liability issue still may not remarry. In order to become married again, you are required to get a decree of divorce or civil union dissolution rather than legal separation.
