RULES OF THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE -- PROBATE DIVISION 

Rule 4. PETITIONS, MOTIONS, OR PLEADINGS - Approved Forms, Form Reproduction.


    No Petition, Motion, objection, or other Pleading, which is contained in a letter shall be accepted by the Register, as such, or acted on by the Court. Approved forms shall be furnished by the Register and must be used in all proceedings to which they are applicable. In all inventories and accounts where there is not sufficient space in the original form, additions or riders may be attached on paper of the same size. If no approved form is specifically applicable, the Party shall then file a Petition or Motion in such form as complies with the Rules of this Court.

    Practitioners may produce form reproductions for use in the Courts that are either computer generated replicas or photocopies of forms furnished by the Registers. Form reproductions are documents containing the identical wording, in the identical format, and pagination as in the original, but font size or style may be different from the font size or style of the original court furnished form. Computer generated replicas or photocopies of multi-paged probate forms may be single-sided.

    All Courts shall accept form reproductions of approved forms. All Courts shall consider that the Party who signs and/or files the form reproduction has agreed that the document is a reproduction of the form of the same import furnished by the Register. The Party who signs and/or files the form reproduction shall be held accountable for its form and content. Discrepancies between a form reproduction and a court-furnished original may subject the Party who signs/or files the reproduction to court-imposed sanctions or penalties, including removal as Fiduciary.
