Is New Hampshire a No-Fault Divorce State?

Yes, New Hampshire is a no-fault state. When it comes to divorce, neither party needs to provide "grounds for divorce," such as adultery, cruelty, or abandonment. The only requirement for a divorce in New Hampshire is the existence of "irreconcilable differences that have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage." If you and your spouse are at a point where your differences cannot be reconciled, then you can file for divorce in the state of New Hampshire.
