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

Rule 54. ADMISSION OF RELEVANT FACTS, GENUINENESS OF DOCUMENTS AND SIGNATURES - Procedure.

    
    Any Party desiring to obtain admission of the signature on or the genuineness of any relevant document or of any relevant facts which he or she believes not to be in dispute, may file a request therefor with the Register, accompanied by any original documents involved, and deliver a copy of such request and documents to the adverse Pro Se Party or Attorney. Each of the matters, of which an admission is requested, shall be deemed admitted, unless within thirty (30) days after such delivery the adverse Party files with the Register and delivers a copy thereof to the Pro Se Party or Attorney requesting such admission, either a sworn denial thereof or a written objection on the ground of privilege or that it is otherwise improper.

    If objection is made to part of a request, the remainder shall be answered within the time limit, and when good faith requires that a Party qualify his or her answer or deny only part of a matter, he or she shall specify so much of it as is true and qualify or deny the remainder.

    Any Party who without good reason or in bad faith denies under this rule any signature or fact which has been requested and which is thereafter proved, or who without good reason or in bad faith requests such admission under this rule and thereafter fails to prove it, may, on Motion of the other Party, be ordered to pay the reasonable expenses, including counsel fees, incurred by such other Party in proving the signature or fact or in denying the request, as the case may be.
