What you need to know
Even though the relationship between you and your spouse has changed and you may no longer be living together, until you are legally divorced, you are still married. The legal ramifications of being married vary from state to state, but generally speaking, until you are divorced you and your spouse have certain rights and obligations to one another. In general, until you are divorced not only can you not remarry but also anything you obtain may be subject to a claim of ownership, in whole or in part, by your spouse, and the future ownership of assets and property already obtained may be unclear.

In order to file for a divorce, both spouses must be residents of New Hampshire for a minimum of one year. If, however, one of the parties has not been a resident for one year, but the other has, and the reason for the divorce happened in the state, then the court recognizes the residency. Spouses who reside in different counties may file in either one of the counties.
