Determining Alimony in New Hampshire

Divorcing couples in New Hampshire often ask whether the issue of alimony should be addressed in their divorce. Put simply, alimony is financial support paid by one spouse to the other for living expenses and reasonable necessities after a divorce. In New Hampshire, alimony is governed by NH RSA 458:19. Regardless of whether one spouse seeks alimony or both are looking to waive past and present alimony (New Hampshire laws do not allow parties to waive future alimony), the issue should always be addressed and made a part of the Final Decree.
