Hawaii Child Custody Laws

HomeChild Custody HawaiiHawaii Child Custody Laws

Every state in US has its own laws and so do the Hawaii child custody laws.

In general, if a petition is placed in the family courts of Hawaii, they decide to award a parent with the physical custody and the other with the visitation rights, or they can be awarded with a joint custody, where both have an equal role in making decisions related to child’s life.

Role of Court:

The court considers the child’s interest and the parent’s decision in terms of custody.

But if the parents don’t come to terms with the agreement, then the judges decide about the custody.

The litigations based on the custody and related issues are often complex and so the judges decide only after considering all the facts and the factors underlying the issue.
