EFFECTIVE Monday May 24, 2021

Effective Monday May 24, 2021 the Strafford County Courthouse will be phasing in reopening to the public. The building remains closed to the public, with the following exceptions:

  • Individuals who need to do business with Circuit and Superior Court clerk’s offices;
  • Individuals involved in court hearings permitted by the New Hampshire Supreme Court Order updated May 14, 2021;
  • Individuals with pre-approved business with County or State personnel; and
  • Individuals who need to conduct business with the Registry of Deeds.

For those entering the Courthouse, you are asked to conduct a self-assessment of COVID-19 risk factors to ensure the health and safety of yourself and personnel. Questions are posted at the entrance to the building. If you can answer yes to the questions, please do not enter the building.

Face Coverings are required throughout the building. If you do not have your own, please obtain one from the court security team at the entrance. Social distancing continues to be encouraged.

All essential State and County personnel will be allowed into the building to conduct business. Please be supportive and patient as we work together to fight this pandemic and keep our personnel safe. We thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.

Based on the potential devastating effects of the Coronavirus (Covid-19), we are taking all steps suggested by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to deter the disease’s progress. Strafford County’s Team has been working diligently and the closure of the Courthouse was determined the best course of action to continue to protect staff from the likely spread of the Corona virus (Covid-19).

Police officers from the Cities of Rochester and Somersworth and the towns of Barrington, Durham, Farmington, Lee, Madbury, Middleton, Milton, New Durham,  Rollinsford and Strafford, as well as officers from the University of New Hampshire Police Department are  crucial partners in the project’s multi-disciplinary response to domestic violence.  These law enforcement professionals are the first responders to domestic violence crimes handled by the Strafford County Domestic Violence Project.

In addition to the crisis management that each situation requires, law enforcement officers are responsible for conducting  thorough investigations that will hopefully lead to  meaningful prosecutions and sentences for offenders of these violent crimes.
