HOW TO FILE NEW HAMPSHIRE UNCONTESTED DIVORCE PAPERS

This is a summary of New Hampshire uncontested divorce filing procedures with an explanation of the primary divorce papers that are filed. The 3StepDivorceTM for New Hampshire helps you prepare all the required paperwork and provides you with much more in depth step-by-step filing procedures to finalize your own divorce than the ones presented below. 3StepDivorce™ will show you how to file for an uncontested divorce in New Hampshire. This summary is written to give you a brief overview of the process and time-line.

In New Hampshire, even when both parties agree to an uncontested, no-fault action, the petitioner must serve the respondent the required divorce papers unless they file a Joint Petition. After the petitioner files the initial divorce papers he or she serves a copy to the respondent and the respondent has a set amount of time that he or she must respond or the case will proceed by default.

Responding means entering an appearance in the divorce action. The respondent completes the Appearance form, and mails the original to the court (or files it in person) and mails a copy to the petitioner.

When the divorcing couple has minor children, the court may require both parents to attend what is termed a “first appearance,” where the judge addresses them and discusses court mediation. Almost all divorces filed in New Hampshire without a lawyer are uncontested and many are filed in a Joint fashion, so the "first appearance" is often very short. At the "first Appearance", the couple has a chance to sign up for mediation in hope to settle any disputes. If either spouse doesn’t want mediation, the clerk schedules a case manager meeting where the case manager guides self-representing couples through the case. If there are no minor children in the divorce, and at least one spouse is self-represented, the couple is assigned a case manager and given the option of mediation if it is needed.

In addition to the Petition or Joint Petition, which identifies the parties and states the grounds, when the petitioner files he or she must also file these required forms:

When there are minor children, in addition to the above forms, the couple must also file:

The first appearance is normally within 30 days of the filing, and the spouses normally receive the Final Decree within 30 days after the first appearance. The marriage ends when the parties sign the Final Decree, which sets forth a final order on the terms and condition of the action in standardized language. It may have attachments like a Marital Settlement Agreement, and is normally signed by both spouses.
