New Hampshire Court Forms

June 19, 2012

Forms for domestic violence related matters are not available online.  You will need to go down to the courthouse where the clerk should be able to provide you with the forms.  To figure out which county you should file in please read In which country can I file for a protective order? on our website.  You can find your nearest courthouse location on the New Hampshire Judicial Branch website or on our NH Courthouse Locations page.

Someone in a domestic violence organization in your area may be able to help you get the forms and also help you through the process. To find help in your area, go to NH Advocates and Shelters. You may also find help from DOVE.  DOVE is a NH program that links volunteer attorneys with clients who need representation for final protective order hearings. To receive help through DOVE, contact your local domestic violence support center. If your case meets program guidelines, an advocate will attempt to match you with a volunteer attorney who will represent you, free of charge, for your final protective order hearing.
