How much does an injunction against harassment cost? Do I need a lawyer?

There are no fees to file for an injunction against harassment.1  The judge may also order the losing party to pay for the winning party’s court costs and attorney’s fees.

Although you do not need a lawyer to file for an injunction against harassment, it may be helpful to have a lawyer.  This is especially important if the harasser has a lawyer or if the case is going to trial.  Even if the harasser does not have a lawyer, it is recommended that you contact a lawyer to make sure that your legal rights are protected.

If you cannot afford a lawyer but want one to help you with your case, you can find information on legal assistance on our HI Finding a Lawyer page.
