More court cases are going electronic, according to the New Hampshire Judicial Branch.

On Feb. 12, civil cases and name-change cases in the Circuit Court will join small claims, guardianships and wills and estate cases that are filed electronically.

The judicial branch says to date, the Circuit Court has opened nearly 90,000 electronically filed cases. With the addition of civil and name change cases, the annual e-filed cases are expected to increase by about 3,700 cases.

The New Hampshire e-Court Program was launched in 2014. The Circuit Court cases are joined by the Superior Court civil and criminal on-line filings, and the Supreme Court on-line appeal filings in all case types. All courthouses in the state are equipped with public kiosks that are located in a central lobby area. Public access to non-confidential electronically filed case documents is available at all kiosks.
