If you are experiencing divorce and are concerned about the alimony laws in New Hampshire, it is important to get the legal information and guidance you need from a New Hampshire lawyer. There are set guidelines for alimony and child support, but every divorcing couple's situation is unique and may require substantial adjustment.
For comprehensive and knowledgeable legal assistance through your situation, please contact one of our divorce attorneys. The laws of our state permit the court to order alimony to either party on either a permanent or temporary basis.
Considerations for Alimony
There are many considerations that the court can take into consideration when establishing alimony. Either spouse can ask for alimony from the other. When determining alimony, the court evaluates:
- Length of the marriage
- Age and health of both parties
- Economic and occupations skills of both parties
- Fault of either party of divorce
- Federal tax consequences of the order
- Contribution of each party financially
The above, as well as other factors, are considered when alimony is requested. The party that is seeking alimony must show a lack of sufficient income or property to reasonably provide for him or herself. The individual who is asked to pay alimony must be able to meet his or her own needs prior to supporting the other party. The party needing alimony must be unable to support him or her through employment at a reasonable standard of living.
