There Are Many Ways to Save When Doing Your Own Divorce in New Hampshire

Divorce does not have to be expensive; you do not have to spend more money than you think when looking for ways to save in a divorce action. As long as you and your spouse are in agreement and both willing to sign, you can use 3StepDivorceTM to complete your uncontested divorce paperwork. This will save you money by not hiring a lawyer to draw up the paperwork for you. Here are some other ways to lower the cost of an uncontested divorce in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire Divorce Courts Expect Good Organization

The Clerk of Court in your county will not only expect you to be organized when you file your required New Hampshire divorce paperwork , but also welcome your good organization to help move your divorce smoothly through the court process. Make sure to keep all your paperwork together, papers you filed, what still needs to be filed, and what documents your spouse needs to receive and/or sign. Keeping your paperwork in order, what still needs to be filed on top, ensures you are prepared when you take the documents to the court. This tip will keep you from making unnecessary trips to and from the courthouse.

Filing Court Papers by Mail in New Hampshire Courts

Once the forms are completed and signed, the Petitioner can either mail in or bring to the New Hampshire court the original Petition and two copies, the Personal Data Sheet, and the filing fee. Mailing saves the parties a trip to the courthouse after the initial paperwork is filed.

A Few New Hampshire Divorce Documents Must be Notarized

When filing you paperwork with the New Hampshire court, Grafton and Rockingham Counties have certain forms specific to those counties. The other counties typically do not have county specific forms.

Some of the New Hampshire divorce forms must be signed and notarized. The Joint Petition for Divorce and Permanent Agreement is signed and notarized by both parties. The Appearance and Waiver of Service is signed by the Co-Petitioner/Respondent and notarized. Each party also has a Financial Affidavit to sign and have notarized.

New Hampshire Courts Waive Filing Fees

New Hampshire charges $215 to $265 filing fee, depending on the county. The Petitioner must pay a fee unless he or she cannot afford it and files a Declaration in Support of Request to Proceed in Forma Pauperis, which the court reviews. If the judge agrees, the fees will be waived.

Filing Your Tax Return After Your New Hampshire Divorce

Couples, who are married, typically file their taxes as married, joint status while they are separated. However, the year you are divorced, you can no longer take advantage of that filing status. You will be placed in a different tax bracket. You also need to be aware, as a single person, if you have children, you must decide who will be taking the childcare deductions.

Serving Your New Hampshire Paperwork on Your Spouse

The clerk sends the Co-Petitioner/Respondent a letter saying that the divorce has been filed after the court receives the divorce Petition, and the Co-Petitioner/Respondent can pick up the divorce papers at the court. This routine saves both spouses money and is easily the least expensive way to serve.

If the Co-Petitioner/Respondent does not pick up the papers, the court clerk sends the Petitioner two copies of the divorce, both of which have the courtโ€™s embedded seal. One copy is the service copy; the other, the return copy.

Otherwise, the Petitioner serves the Co-Petitioner/Respondent by sending the service copy to the Co-Petitioner/Respondent, return receipt requested, with restricted delivery so only the Co-Petitioner/Respondent spouse can sign, or hiring the sheriff for the county where the Co-Petitioner/Respondent lives or works to perform the service. The second is more expensive than the first and the third is more expensive than the second.

Need Legal Help in New Hampshire

New Hampshire Legal Aid often can provide advice or even refer you to the right resource should you have questions about your rights or what you might be entitled to in your divorce. If you get stuck in divorce negotiations and feel the need of legal advice, you may be able to get free legal help. New Hampshire also has what is called unbundles or limited representation. One way to save money if you feel the need to hire a lawyer is to only hire the lawyer for the part you are unsure of, the rest you would do on your own.

New Hampshire Divorce Mediation

In New Hampshire, mediation is mandatory in cases where there are minor children unless the court deems mediation not appropriate due to domestic violence or if the court orders otherwise.
