Living in New Hampshire has a lot of benefits: breath-taking scenery, a sparsely populated state, and an unobtrusive government. Most New Hampshirites are fiercely proud of the “Live free or die” motto and are deeply invested in it, which is probably the reason why New Hampshire has some unique laws.

Even though driving while talking on a cell phone was finally banned in 2015, New Hampshire still does not require car passengers to wear a seatbelt or motorcyclists to wear a helmet. And drivers in New Hampshire are not required to purchase auto insurance if they have the financial means to cover medical bills or property damage caused by an accident.uninsured-1

If you hit an animal on a New Hampshire road or highway, who is responsible for the damage to your car and any injuries you suffered from the accident?

In New Hampshire, child support orders can be modified to reduce or increase child support payments. There are two different situations when the parties subject to a child support order can request a modification. First, every three years the parties will automatically receive a notice informing them that they have the right at that time to request an adjustment. Second, you can request a modification when there is a substantial change in circumstances that makes the original order unfair.childsupport74-300x200
