Changes to New Hampshire Annulment Laws
In 2020, the New Hampshire Legislature passed HB 1645 which, among other things, made certain changes to the current annulment statute. Under the new law, the annulment period for any misdemeanor crime of domestic violence under RSA 631:2-b was increased to 10 years. Because the annulment statute requires that the time frame for annulment be met for all offenses on a person's criminal record before that person may apply to annul any single offense, this change may result in a significant delay in annulment eligibility for persons with any domestic violence conviction on thie record. If you have questions about whether you are eligible for annulment, please feel free to contact us.
