Where do hearings occur?


On April 1, 2017, the Felonies First program which was passed by the Legislature and signed by the Governor went into effect. All Felony level offenses are now prosecuted by the Grafton County Attorney’s Office and hearings occur at the Grafton County Superior Court. Any and all questions regarding the status of these cases should be directed to the Grafton County Attorney’s Office, see http://www.co.grafton.nh.us/all-departments/attorneys-office/, or the Grafton County Superior Court, see https://www.courts.state.nh.us/courtlocations/grafsupedir.htm.


All Juvenile hearings are heard at the 2nd Circuit Court – Family Division – Lebanon. For questions regarding hearing dates, please contact the Lebanon Family Court, see https://www.courts.state.nh.us/courtlocations/famgraftdir.htm. Follow the same procedures for checking in with the Court Bailiffs or Clerk's Office as in an adult case. Juvenile proceedings are not open to the public and are held in rooms separate from those used for adult criminal trials. Important: it is a criminal offense to disclose the names or addresses of juveniles involved in Juvenile offenses.


All misdemeanor, violation, and city ordinance cases are heard in the 2nd Circuit Court – District Division – Lebanon. For questions about court dates, pending charges, or how to file motions to continue or other requests, please contact the 2nd Circuit Court – District Division – Lebanon, see https://www.courts.state.nh.us/courtlocations/grafdistdir.htm.
