Hawaii Custody and Visitation Lawyer

Custody and visitation are important issues, and can be very stressful. Custody cases are often the most complex in family law.

Determination of custody and visitation by Family Court is based on what is in the child’s best interests. Be aware children have different needs at different ages and this will be taken into account by the Court.

If contested, you must prove to the Court why a grant of custody or visitation to you is in your child’s best interests. The amount of time-sharing may affect the amount of child support you or the other party may have to pay.
