We Look For The Best Divorce Strategy For You

Under New Hampshire law, most spouses in a contested divorce are required to at least attempt mediation prior to litigating their divorce. Mediation may be a requisite for divorce, but it has its benefits. We make sure that this time is not wasted. If mediation fails and court becomes the best, necessary or even preferred option for your situation, our lawyers have extensive litigation experience.

We will utilize our extensive experience to protect your rights and interests in all aspects of your divorce, including:

  • Alimony: Spousal support is not automatic nor is it awarded in every case. An award and the amount are determined based on several factors such as need and the ability to pay.
  • Property division: Assets and liabilities are divided under the theory of equitable division, but equitable does not always translate to equal or 50/50 under the law.
  • Child custody and support: The presumption under the law is that children benefit from the active involvement of both parents. From there, a court may deviate based on the circumstances and needs of the child to develop a parenting schedule suited to the child's best interests. Support is determined based on income and a number of other factors under the child support guidelines, including circumstances supporting a deviation from the guideline amount.
  • Cost: Our representation includes considering the financial cost of your divorce. We develop strategies designed to protect your financial interests as well.
