Hawaii Court Forms

November 15, 2018

Hawaii issues protective and restraining orders through both the District Court and Family Court depending on your relationship to the abuser. The Hawaii State Judiciary website has links to the family court protective order forms, district court protective order forms, uncontested divorce forms, and more. You can also request the paperwork from the clerk when you arrive at the courthouse. To find the courts near you please see our HI Courthouse Locations page.

Local domestic violence organizations may be able to help you fill out the necessary forms or otherwise help you through the process. Go to HI Advocates and Shelters to find an organization in your area.
