Divorce is one of the most traumatic events a person can experience. It can also be one of the most freeing. The quality of the attorney who handles your divorce can make the difference between a divorce that goes well and one that ends badly.
Our Nashua-based family law attorneys can guide you through confidential discussions about the actions that are right for you, and through any collaborative process, negotiation, mediation or court litigation that is needed to resolve your important issues of property division, child custody and visitation, alimony (spousal support) and relocation.
Experience With All Types Of Divorces
Our lawyers have successfully assisted numerous clients throughout New Hampshire in these and other circumstances:
- Uncontested divorces, in which clients can settle their financial and parenting issues out of court, saving money, time and emotional conflict.
- Contested divorces, in which clients must go to court or seek mediation to resolve complicated issues surrounding financial assets, real property and parenting responsibilities.
- Legal separations, in which clients are unready to divorce or do not wish to divorce for financial, personal or religious reasons, or to maintain health insurance coverage.
- Civil union dissolution, in which clients seek to dissolve a civil union, and to resolve issues relating to money, real property and shared children, whether through negotiations, mediation or in court.

Other Divorce-Related Issues
In New Hampshire, most divorces are "no fault," meaning that neither spouse is held liable for the failure of the marriage and marital assets are divided equitably. However, when physical or verbal abuse, adultery, alcoholism or other specific factors contribute to the failure of the marriage, the aggrieved spouse may be able to collect additional alimony, collect a larger share of the marital assets, or gain leverage in court decisions about child custody or child access.
It is often very difficult to prove fault in divorce cases, however, so any decision about whether to pursue such a course should be made in consultation with an attorney.
Mediation As An Alternative To Court
It's almost never too late to negotiate the terms of a divorce. Even if you are set to go to court, you and your spouse can choose to save money and maintain more control over your legal outcomes by pursuing negotiations or mediation. Our attorneys are trained in mediation and collaborative techniques, and are qualified to assist clients in finding solutions that fit their lives and their pocketbooks.
