Courts in Hawaii
Court Records, Directory And News in HI
In Hawaii, District Courts and Circuit Courts comprise the state's trial court division. Hawaii's Circuit Courts handle some criminal cases, probate and guardianship matters, and civil cases valued at more than $25,000. District Courts have jurisdiction over traffic, landlord-tenant, small claims, and county ordinance cases. Hawaii's Family Courts handle matters including delinquency, adoption, divorce, child support, domestic violence, and paternity. Hawaii's Land and Tax Appeal Court exclusively hears cases related to applications for the registration of title to land easements or land rights. Hawaii's appellate courts include the Intermediate Court of Appeals and the Hawaii Supreme Court.

If you're seeking Hawaii court records, you can use the state's eCourt Kokua system (http://www.courts.state.hi.us/legal_references/records/jims_system_availability.html) to view information about appellate and Supreme Court cases, as well as traffic cases in the District Court. Hawaii court's other online database is Ho'ohiki (http://www.courts.state.hi.us/legal_references/records/hoohiki_disclaimer.html), which provides information regarding Circuit and Family Court cases, and some civil District court cases. Note that these databases aren't guaranteed to be complete or up-to-date. Although you can view case information and a list of documents in a case, to obtain copies of the actual Hawaii court documents, you'll need to contact the court that handled the matter in question.
