NEW HAMPSHIRE SUPERIOR COURT ADMINISTRATIVE RULES

MARITAL AND DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS

Rule 7-4. Marriage Counseling Referral Service.

    
    The Clerk of Court in each County, where there is an approved family service agency, is authorized in the absence of the Presiding Justice to exercise discretion in each case where a libel for divorce or petition for legal separation has been filed to determine whether to recommend that the matter be referred to such agency. This determination shall be based upon the information obtained from the pleadings or elsewhere; and, where a temporary allowance hearing is held shall follow such hearing. If referral is recommended, a report thereof shall be made to the Court including the reasons therefor. No referral shall be effective until ordered by the Presiding Justice.
