A litigated divorce is a court based traditional divorce process. In this process, the parties present information so that the court can make decisions related to child support, parenting issues, property division, alimony and division of debt. This process uses an adversarial court system which focuses on conflict which often results in hostility between the parties.
The New Hampshire Family Court encourages parties to work together, often with professional help, to craft their own parenting plans and divorce decrees when possible. When this is not possible, the parties may need the intervention of the court to make these decisions.
