Divorce Law in Hawai’i

The Family Court’s monthly Divorce Law in Hawaiʻi public education program begins its 23rd year in January 2024. Started in 2002 as a companion to the Family Court’s Kids First program, Divorce Law in Hawaiʻi 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.

Sign up today for a free one-hour “Divorce Law in Hawaiʻi” session. Conducted by Family Law Attorney/Mediator William Darrah and mediators from The Mediation Center of the Pacific, you will learn the nuts and bolts of working through the divorce process with the least amount of stress and cost.
