Court Order Amending Family Division Rules

The NH Supreme Court has adopted amendments to Circuit Court – Family Division Rule 2.29, clarifying previous amendments to the same rule, which went into effect Jan. 1, 2017. The most recent amendment and comment are meant to clarify that the earlier amendments were not intended to affect the trial court’s existing authority to act on certain matters while an appeal is pending.
