Child Custody in New Hampshire

When parents split up, it can have a major effect on the couple's children. That's why it's essential for parents to reach agreement on issues related to child custody, visitation and child support. If parents, with the assistance of their child custody attorneys, are unable to reach an agreement, then a New Hampshire Family Division judge will make the decisions for you.

How Can a Child Custody Lawyer Help You?

There's no law that requires you to hire a New Hampshire child custody attorney to manage your custody case, but it's a smart practice. Consider hiring an attorney if:

  • Your child's paternity needs to be established
  • You and your child's other parent have difficulty communicating with one another
  • There's some question as to whether New Hampshire or another state has jurisdiction over your child custody matter
  • Your child's other parent is not adhering to the parenting plan or visitation schedule
  • You'd like to modify the New Hampshire child custody or child support agreement
