Circuit Court Family Division - Do You Need a Lawyer?

Anyone who goes to court without a lawyer takes a serious risk.  These cases can be complicated and it is recommended that you consult a lawyer to best protect your interests, especially if there are issues regarding parental rights and responsibilities of children, property or pension/retirement benefits. 

Recent changes in court rules now allow a lawyer to represent you for a portion of your case, which can reduce costs. Read more about  "unbundled legal services."

Even if you appear in court without a lawyer, you will be required to follow the court rules. See Family Division Rules.

To find out more information about lawyers, see the New Hampshire Bar Association website.
