HOW DO I DOCUMENT <br />MY RESTITUTION LOSSES <br />FOR THE COURT? <br />To ensure,accurate and complete restitution orders, <br />you, as a victim of crime, are required to document, <br />and verify your losses in writing— to:the degree <br />possible —for the court. <br />The timely submission of your restitution documen- <br />tation is very important so ,that the prosecutor can <br />request restitution and the judge can order it. <br />The Hawai'i Restitution Documentation Form that <br />accm <br />opanies this brochure can help you consider, <br />document, and total your financial losses. <br />Sometimes, it can be difficult to accurately docu- <br />ment your losses. The information below is designed <br />to help you think about the best way to document <br />your losses. <br />Documentation and verification may include: <br />• Copies of bills or statements for services directly <br />related to your financial recovery from the crime. <br />• Any receipts or cancelled checks. <br />• Photos of valuables that were stolen: <br />• Estimates of the value of stolen or damaged prop- <br />erty (visit www.edmunds.com for values of vehi- <br />cles and on www.ebay.com for values of other <br />types of stolen property). <br />• Documentation provided by local law enforcement <br />agencies (records of serial numbers, photos, etc.) <br />that are intended to aid victims in the recovery of <br />stolen property or indicate the status of the property. <br />• Copies of insurance claims and related corre- <br />spondence between you and your insurance <br />company, as well as copies of any checks you <br />may have received to cover losses. <br />HOW CAN MY RESTITUTION <br />ORDER BE CONVERTED TO <br />A CIVIL ORDER? <br />Your restitution order can be enforced in the same <br />manner as a civil judgment and is subject to all rele- <br />vant civil collection remedies, such as a lien on the <br />defendant's property. <br />Simply file your certified or exemplified restitution <br />order from any Hawai'i criminal court with the - <br />office of any Clerk of Court at no cost to you —there <br />is no filing fee. <br />FOR MORE INFORMATION <br />If you have any questions or need further assistance <br />after reading this brochure, please contact <br />Prosecutor's Office <br />Honolulu (808) 768 -7400 <br />Maui (�08) 270 -7777 <br />Kauai (808) 241 -1888 <br />Hilo (808) 961 -0466 <br />Kona (808) 322 -2552 <br />Victim Witness Assistance Program <br />Honolulu (808) 768 -7401 <br />Maui (808) 270 -7695 <br />Kauai (808) 241 -1888 <br />Hilo (808) 934 -3306 <br />Kona (808) 322 -2552 <br />The project was supported by Award No: 2005 -VA -CX -0046 awarded by <br />the.Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs.
