NH Senate Bill 145

Notary Law Update: NH Senate Bill 145

State: New Hampshire

Summary:

Marital masters – officers appointed by the Superior Court to handle domestic cases and issue advisory orders in proceedings over which the Court has jurisdiction – now enjoy automatic powers to perform notarial acts.

Signed:  June 11, 2007

Effective:  June 11, 2007

Chapter: 120

Affects:

Amends the New Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated Section 456-B:3(I)(b)

Changes:
  1. Authorizes a marital master, register of probate or deputy register of probate of any state court to perform notarial acts.
Analysis:

New Hampshire’s Uniform Law on Notarial Acts already authorizes a judge, clerk, or deputy clerk of any state court or a justice of the peace to perform notarial acts. Through this new law, marital masters – officers appointed by the Superior Court to handle domestic cases and issue advisory orders in proceedings over which the Court has jurisdiction – now enjoy automatic powers to perform notarial acts, as do registers and deputy registers of probate. Registers of probate are elected to their position within the probate court.
