If both spouses live in New Hampshire, you can file for divorce there regardless of how long the two of you have lived there. If only one spouse lives in New Hampshire, the spouse who files for divorce must live in-state for at least 12 months before filing.
Grounds for Divorce
If you and your spouse have problems that have damaged your marriage beyond repair, you meet the requirements for a no-fault divorce on the grounds that irreconcilable differences have caused the irremediable breakdown of your marriage.
Filing Your Divorce Papers
All New Hampshire divorces are filed at the Clerk's office for the Circuit Court Family Division in a county where either spouse lives.
You may file in person at the Court Clerk's office, but many people find it easier to simply mail in the divorce papers with copies and the filing fee. When filing by mail, include a self-addressed stamped envelope for the Court Clerk's office to use to mail two copies of each document filed back to you.
Time to Finalize
Uncontested divorces in New Hampshire can be finalized in as little as 60 days from the date the divorce was filed.
