New Parenting Plan Modification Law

On May 31, 2016, Governor Hassan signed HB1280 into law.  This bill expands the reasons and criteria for modifying a Parenting Plan within our Family Court system.

The bill, which goes into effect on January 1, 2017, adds three new categories for allowing modification of a parenting schedule.  Attorney Elizabeth LaRochelle, one of many competent and insured panel members of the NH Lawyer Referral Service (LRS), explains the new law in greater detail on her firm’s blog.
