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.
