Hawaii Self-Help Interactive Forms

Legal Aid Society of Hawaii,  the Hawaii Judiciary and the Hawaii State Bar, with funding from the Legal Services Corporation's Technology Initiatives Grant, have collaborated to launch the Hawaii Self-Help Interactive Forms Project.


You can access free interactive interviews that create court forms and legal documents to help self-represented individuals throughout Hawaii. The interactive interviews ask a series of questions to complete a legal form or court approved document.  The interactive interview also provides helpful information and instructions for next steps.
