Divorce Law in Hawaii

The Family Court’s monthly Divorce Law in Hawaii public education program begins its 19th year in January 2021. Started in 2002 as a companion to the Family Court’s Kids First program, Divorce Law in Hawaii covers custody, property division, child support and alimony, the difference between a contested divorce and uncontested divorce, all the ways to settle a divorce, and additional resources available to divorcing spouses.

William C. Darrah, Esq., an attorney in private practice, addresses the law and process of divorce, divorce settlement options, and ways to resolve a divorce with a minimum of conflict and expense. Tracey Wiltgen, Esq., the executive director of the Mediation Center of the Pacific, describes mediation as a divorce settlement option, and what happens in a divorce mediation at MCP.
