Hawaii Public Records

Search public records in Hawaii for information on people and property

Public records are documents that have been filed or recorded by either public agencies or private individuals. Such records include birth and death records, marriage and divorce papers, criminal records, real estate documents, licenses, and so on.

Public records are held by federal, state and local governments, who in turn determine their availability. Although state of Hawaii public records are accessible to the public, you may be expected to pay for some information; the fees will vary depending on the department. You can always visit state departments and offices for public records, though there's a breadth of information online. When researching Hawaii public records, remember the following:

2. Make sure that the Hawaii official records you get are up to date.

3. Get information from a credible source when searching Hawaii public records online. You may be liable for turning someone down if you base a hiring decision on incorrect facts.

Consider checking Hawaii court records before you hire an employee

As a business owner, it's smart to run background checks on potential employees, especially if you're hiring childcare providers and teachers.
