How to Domesticate an Out-of-State Subpoena in New Hampshire

Understanding How to Domesticate an Out-of-State Subpoena in New Hampshire:

New Hampshire adopted the Uniform Interstate Deposition and Discovery Act on September 1, 2014. According to the Act, a court of clerks in Hampshire has the authority to domesticate and issue subpoenas in Hampshire. Attorneys in Hampshire can also issue subpoenas as regulated in Rule 45 of the Rules of Civil Procedure.

Here are the steps you would need to take:

  • Obtain a valid subpoena from the state where the case or legal proceeding is pending. The subpoena must comply with the rules of that state and the discovery state and include all the necessary information.

  • Complete a Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act subpoena form available from the New Hampshire courts or online. The form requires you to provide information about the case, the witness, and the requested testimony or evidence.

  • Submit the completed form and the out-of-state subpoena to a New Hampshire clerk of court with jurisdiction in the state's county court. The court will review the documents and issue a valid subpoena in New Hampshire if they are in order.

  • Arrange for service of the subpoena on the witness. The subpoena must be served per the state's rules where the witness is located. If the witness is in New Hampshire, the subpoena may be served by a sheriff, constable, or another authorized person.

  • It is important to note that under the U.I.D.D.A., a party may obtain a subpoena to call an out-of-state witness without giving prior notice of the witness's location in New Hampshire. However, the party must still comply with the rules of the state where the witness is located and obtain a valid subpoena from that state.
