17.1 Settlements on Behalf of Minors

No settlement of any suit brought on behalf of a minor by a parent or next friend shall be valid unless approved by the court. To obtain approval of a settlement on behalf of a minor, the parties shall file a motion that is signed by the minor's parent, next friend, or guardian. If the minor is a New Hampshire resident, the motion shall contain the information required by New Hampshire Superior Court Civil Rule 40. If the minor is a resident of a state other than New Hampshire, the motion shall contain the information required by sections (d), (e), (i) and (k) of Rule 40 and a brief statement of law relative to minor settlements in the state of residence with citations to relevant authority.
