Grounds for Divorce

In New Hampshire, both fault and no-fault divorce are recognized. This means that when filing for divorce, the plaintiff may point out the other spouse's misconduct as a cause for their breakup. In doing so, the plaintiff will have to provide the court with strong evidence of the chosen ground.

According to the New Hampshire Revised Statutes, the fault grounds for divorce include impotence, adultery, extreme cruelty, imprisonment for more than one year, willful abandonment for two years, habitual drunkenness for two years, behavior that risks the other spouse's life or health, and joining a religious sect or society which professes to believe the relation of the husband and wife is unlawful.

The only no-fault ground for divorce established by New Hampshire law is Irreconcilable differences. The spouses just have to claim that their marriage is broken, and there is no hope of reconciliation for a divorce to be granted. No one needs to blame anybody or prove anything.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found newhampshireonlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
