File your Complaint for Damages and Summons at the District Court. On Oahu, all forms must be filed at the Honolulu District Court.
Take the packets (1 original and 3 copies) to District Court. A court clerk will date-stamp each packet. You will have to pay a filing fee. Please check with the court how much it will be.
If you cannot afford this fee, you can request a fee waiver by filling out the Ex Parte Application for Relief from Costs form. This form can be picked up from the District Court in your area or on the Hawaii State Judiciary Website. If you request a fee waiver, you will need to wait for the judge to approve your waiver before the court will file your other forms.
Once you have paid the filing fee or received a fee waiver, the clerk will keep your original Complaint for Damages and Summons, and will return the copies to you.
