Administrative Order 9 Protocol for Background Check in Adoption Proceedings with No Home Study: address for agency was corrected and the language was clarified in first paragraph.
Procedure Bulletin 7 The Appointment of Temporary Administrators Pursuant to RSA 553:20-a was revised to reflect the change to forms. Any reference to the certification of copies to parties form was removed. In addition, reference is made in 4, 5, and 6 to a new form being released, Temporary Administrator 60 Day Report (NHJB-2558-P).
NOTE: AO 13 is for medical records and does not require the new form (NHJB-2558-P).
