Temporary Rules for Family Division


The New Hampshire Supreme Court has approved temporary rules for the Family Division, effective October 15, 2007. 


The existing Family Division Rules were created in 1996 for the Family Division Pilot Project, which was operating in two counties. In the remaining eight counties, similar cases which continued to be heard in Superior, District and Probate Courts were subject to trial court rules.  With the expansion of the family division statewide, it became necessary to compile a single, comprehensive set of family division rules drawn principally from the existing rules. Trial court rules will continue to apply in counties where the Family Division is not yet operable.


The Family Division Rules were developed by a team of family division judges and marital masters, with input from all family division judges and marital masters, along with Family Division administrators.


Questions regarding these rules should be directed to: The full test of the rules can be found at:
