Restraining Orders in Hawaii


RESTRAINING ORDERS IN HAWAII

The courts of the State of Hawaii issue thousands of restraining orders a year. An individual can go to the Family or District Court and ask for a restraining order against you, without you being there to give your side of the story, and without you even being notice that such a request is being made against you.

The issuance of a restraining order against you can have immediate and drastic consequences. Restraining orders can require that you immediately vacate your residence, deny you access to your children, and prevent you from going to your place of work.
