CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s judicial branch now allows civil cases to be filed electronically at all 11 superior courts.
The state’s “e-Court” program began in 2012. Since then, courts have allowed small claims, guardianship, estate and now civil cases to be filed online.
Superior Court Chief Justice Tina Nadeau says the switch away from paper benefits lawyers, people representing themselves and the court system, starting with fewer trips to the courthouse for litigants and ending with cases being resolved more quickly.
The program will expand next year to include civil cases in circuit court and attorney filing in superior court criminal cases.
