Effective December 1, 2011, there is a new mandatory disclosure rule in NH that requires parties to exchange financial information and a number of other documents early in divorce, legal separation, annulment, civil union dissolution, parenting, and child support cases and in petitions to enforce or modify orders in these case types.  Because most family matters involve dividing assets, debts, providing child support, and/or providing for health insurance, the Court now requires that both the Petitioner and Respondent file these documents within 45 days (sometimes fewer days depending on the date of an initial hearing) of notice of action.  This can be very intimidating and confusing to an individual at the beginning of any already daunting process.  Our office is available to walk you through the mandatory disclosure rule, assist you in identifying and gathering the necessary documents and information, and ensure that you comply with this new rule and don’t risk adverse court rulings.
