Whenever two people enter into a marriage contract, many of their individual assets and funds become shared property. Whether this property was acquired before or during the marriage, it is generally considered to belong to both spouses. When a divorce occurs, the New Hampshire Courts attempts to divide marital property evenly to ensure fairness. However, if the Court finds that an equal division would not be equitable or appropriate after taking into consideration certain factors, then property division law comes into play.
The property division is not as straightforward as one might expect. Many assume that you will automatically regain rights to property that was individually owned prior to the marriage, but a wide variety of factors can influence which spouse will get to keep which assets.
