Personal checks accepted to pay for legal documents

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Aug 29, 2014

~~<p class="p1"><strong>Question: </strong>I recently went to get legal documents from the Kapolei courthouse and didn't know you had to pay in cash only. I was short $1. I asked the clerk if I could write a check. She said the only people who could write a check were lawyers. What? Why are lawyers better than me? When I went to the cashier, I noticed a sign that said &quot;no personal checks,&quot; etc. It did not have an exception saying that only lawyers could write checks. Can you check on this? If the clerk was right, the sign has to be changed. If she's wrong, someone has to correct her. I'm still upset about this.</p>
<p class="p1"><strong>Answer:</strong> Hawaii State Judiciary officials apologized for the &quot;difficulties&quot; you experienced.</p>
