Hawaii Self-Help Interactive Forms
Legal Aid Society of Hawaii, the Hawaii State Judiciary, and the Hawaii State Bar, with funding from the Legal Services Corporation's Technology Initiatives Grant, have collaborated to bring free interactive interviews that create court forms and legal documents to help self-represented individuals throughout Hawaii. The interactive forms were developed for use by limited income persons representing themselves in civil legal matters, but are available free of charge to all persons. The interactive interviews ask a series of questions to complete a legal form or court approved document. The interactive interviews also provide helpful information and instructions for next steps.These interviews can be used Statewide unless noted otherwise.
Use this interactive interview to assist you in completing either 1) A motion requesting that the court move your hearing to an earlier date (Advance Hearing) OR 2) A motion requesting that the court speeds up the time it normally takes to receive and consider a response (Expedite Hearing).
