A New Hampshire separation agreement lets married couples who no longer wish to live together make essential decisions about property, child support, and other matters without getting divorced. Legal separation is a court-overseen process with many effects of divorce but without the finality.

Couples may choose to pursue separation rather than divorce for several reasons, including being able to remain on most insurance policies.
