How do I register my protection order in Hawaii? Does it cost anything?
You may wish to file your out-of-state protection order in Hawaii by getting a certified (stamped and sealed) copy of your protection order along with a sworn affidavit (written statement) that says the order is still effective. There is no fee to file your out-of-state protection order.1
If you need help registering your protection order, you can contact a local domestic violence organization in Hawaii for assistance. You can find contact information for organizations in your area here on our HI Advocates and Shelters page.
