Forms and Fees

Using the proper form is critical to processing your court action.  Often more than one form will be needed to process your case. Many forms need to be signed in front of a notary public.  Also be aware of the implications of signing a form.  You may want to check with a lawyer before putting your signature on a document.

Filling out a form

Most NHJB forms are also capable of being completed electronically when saved and OPENED in Adobe Reader which provides full PDF functionality. Internet browsers such as Edge, Chrome and Firefox, or devices such as cell phones and tablets, may not support all PDF functions in a NHJB form.

You can use the TAB key to navigate the form from field to field and keying data into each field. With Adobe Reader OLDER than XI, you cannot save the completed (or partially completed) form to electronic media. If you are using Adobe Reader XI or NEWER you can complete (or partially complete) a form and save it. You can print the form with any version when complete. Forms that are not yet in a fillable format will be placed in that format in the future. A list of free PDF readers for different operating systems can be found here.
