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

Rule 45. USE OF VIDEOTAPE DEPOSITIONS - Procedure.

    
    The Court, within its discretion, may allow the use of videotape depositions that have been taken by agreement. If the Parties cannot reach such an agreement, the Court may, in its discretion, order the taking and/or use of such depositions. At the commencement of the videotape deposition, the Pro Se Party or Attorney representing the Party taking the deposition shall state whose deposition it is, for what case it is being taken, where it is being taken, who will be asking the questions, and the date and the time of the deposition. Care shall be taken to have the witnesses speak slowly and distinctly and that papers be readily available for reference without undue delay and unnecessary noise. All persons attending the deposition shall comport themselves at all times as if they were actually in the courtroom.

    If any problem arising as to the admissibility or inadmissibility of evidence, this should be handled in the same manner as written depositions.
