In order to properly handle an issue in any given state you must use a lawyer from the state the transaction is being completed in. Many lawyers are admitted to more than one state Bar and your best bet is to hire an attorney who is admitted to practice in both Mass and New Hampshire.

The reason for requiring an attorney to be licensed in the state is that certain laws differ depending on the state. If you have a specific attorney in mind ask them if they are able to get waived in to handle this matter in New Hampshire but for something as simple as what you are trying to do you should really just use an attorney either from New Hampshire or licensed in both states to make things more convenient for yourself.


IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
