New Hampshire Family Law

Even under the best of circumstances, separation and divorce are difficult. When children are involved, the process becomes even more difficult. At our firm, we possess years of experience in dealing with all elements of New Hampshire family law, so we understand and sympathize with your concerns and can offer assistance in navigating your way through these complicated waters.

Our NH family law attorneys have dedicated a significant portion of their careers working alongside clients to locate the ideal solution for themselves and their families. Each case is unique, and we realize that investing the required time into learning about the family dynamics of our clients and their hopes for the future have a considerable impact upon their case’s outcome. It is our pledge to you to work diligently to protect what you have worked so hard to acquire.

If you have questions that arise prior to your decision to file for divorce, or questions about the New Hampshire divorce process itself, we can answer these. We will thoroughly explain each step in the process to you, offer excellent legal representation at legal hearings, and prepare the required paperwork unique to your case. The following are just a few of the aspects of family law we are experienced in:

§  Modifications or initial orders for child support

§  Spousal support and alimony

§  Division of marital assets

§  Post-divorce issues

Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)

A Qualified Domestic Relations Order is a legal court order that enables a retirement plan to be equitably divided under specific circumstances, so that the plan’s participant and their former spouse can receive an equal share. Often times, in New Hampshire divorce cases, the family court system will allot a specified portion one party’s retirement plan to the other former spouse. QRDOs can also be used to pay alimony or child support to another party. In order to fairly divide the account, specific paperwork that complies with federal law must be submitted. Our NH family law attorneys have experience in dealing with QDROs and would be more than willing to discuss this option with you.

Limited Representation or Unbundled Services

We offer assistance with specific portions of your case, but you are responsible for managing the rest of it. Just some of the areas that we can offer limited representation on include:
