Coping financially following a New Hampshire divorce

No couple in New Hampshire has a perfect relationship. While disagreements and conflict are a normal part of married life, some couples' issues go deeper than these expected struggles. While many can work through their problems, others often accept that a divorce may be the only option to a happier life.

Will changes in alimony provisions affect your divorce?

Perhaps you have been considering divorce for some time. You and your spouse may have spoken openly about it, but, for whatever reason, decided to put it off. Like many higher-earning spouses in New Hampshire, you may have expected that you would pay your spouse alimony, at least for a few years, until he or she found a way to live independently of your financial support.

Don't feel rushed to make post-divorce living arrangements

Ending a New Hampshire marriage requires a considerable investment of time and energy. There are many decisions to be made and seemingly very little time to make life-altering choices. When it comes to deciding where to live after a divorce, it's important to avoid rushing into a decision that can have lasting ramifications. 

Child custody decision reversed for second time

Although a divorce in New Hampshire can be an emotionally stressful time for everyone involved, many parents are able to maintain enough of a positive relationship to continue making decisions for their children together. However, this isn't always the case. Often, the relationship is so damaged that parents are unable to coparent together. Such appears to be the case for a former couple in another state whose child custody case has twice been remanded to a lower court.

Seeking child custody through alternative dispute resolution

In New Hampshire, couples often plan their lives together. They decide to get married and have children with the intention that they will spend the rest of their lives together. However, people and circumstances change as time passes, often leaving couples no longer compatible. Although they may no longer be suited to remain in a romantic relationship, they will have to continue to make decisions, including those involving child custody.
