Although this following info does not qualify for NJ, it is designed for NH residents who are facing the same question. It is recommended that you connect with a local attorney about the specifics of this case. The benefit in the long run may be significant.

    Edrea’s Answer

    Yes, I'd recommend to consult with a family law firm in MA to discuss options. Also, as context, this is a brief background on changing child support in NH. It does not substitute for specific legal advice for your particular situation, nor does it apply to MA, but it may be helpful to provide a little more info.

  • How do I file against her charge of adultery using her infidelity against her?

    My wife has filed for a fault divorce in NH citing Adultery as one of the grounds. I know she has had an affair during our marriage and committed adultery with me when we first got together as she was still legally married at that time.

    Edrea’s Answer

    Agreed, please consult with a divorce attorney in New Hampshire. In re: adultery, please see this FAQ about affairs/marriages in New Hampshire and "grounds for divorce." It may be helpful for your circumstances. That said, it does not supplant getting personal and confidential legal advice from a local attorney. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me (familylawnewhampshire.com).
