Hawaii Public Records

Vital records such as births, deaths, marriage and divorce are collected and archived by the Office of Health Status Monitoring unit of the Hawaii Department of Health. The state has a comprehensive database of births, deaths and marriages and a partial archive of divorce records which currently include events between July 1951 to December 2002. All other dates must be obtained from the local court in which they were filed.

All records start as confidential, then become public records 75 years after the filing date. Rush service is not available for records older than 75 years.
