If there are minor children born to or adopted by the parties either before or during the marriage,
complete questions 6 – 9. This information is required under RSA 458-A, the Uniform Child Custody
Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA).
It is important that you answer these questions with as much detail and accuracy as possible. Lack of
adequate information could significantly delay orders being issued in your case.
There are several situations that might result in New Hampshire exercising jurisdiction over child/ren. The
continuous presence of the child/ren in New Hampshire for six (6) months is not the only basis for jurisdiction.
In some emergency situations, the court may be able to exercise jurisdiction on a temporary basis.
