For the past three years I have finalized all of my clients divorces within 65 days of meeting the client. That's my goal. I've seen some NH Family Courts take three yeas to complete a divorce. After the typical hour initial consultation with my New Hampshire divorce clients, I have enough information to know how to resolve their divorce fairly and timely. Each divorce is custom drafted to meet individual requirements. Some clients will come to me as their second attorney after their divorce has been pending for over a year with a trial date, also known as a Final Hearing, scheduled out another eight months. The benefits in handling your divorce objectively include minimizing the acrimony between the parties, minimizing trauma to minor children, expedite the case and lower attorney's fees.
This answer is based on Attorney Rich Clark's experience in the following Family Division Courts located in Rockingham County and Strafford County: Portsmouth, Brentwood, Hampton, Dover and Rochester.
