Uncontested divorce in Hawaii

Couples who decided to end their marriage have two options in the state of Hawaii:

  • Contested dissolution. This type of divorce is the only option available to spouses who are unable to reach a consensus on important divorce matters and need to involve lawyers into their cases. Contested divorce usually lasts for months, years in some cases, is extremely expensive, and takes a huge toll on everyone who is somehow involved in the process.
  • Uncontested divorce. When spouses both agree to end their marriage without any disputes and are ready to divide the assets fairly, their dissolution is called uncontested. In this case, hiring a lawyer is optional, and it’s unlikely that a couple will have to attend more than 1 hearing. Therefore, the process will be much smoother and a lot less stressful to spouses and kids if they have any.

Divorce, in addition to taking a huge emotional toll on both parties, also requires being prepared to invest various resources like your time and energy. In case an uncontested dissolution is your option of choice, and you decide not to get a lawyer involved, you need to figure out where to get the forms, which ones to get, and what info to put down in each. Dealing with the paperwork is considered one of the most difficult stages in the process as there are dozens of forms that have to be filled out correctly if you want them to be approved by the court. If you wish to avoid such a time-consuming and nerve-wrecking activity, OnlineDivorcer is here to help.

  • Next, you have to complete all the required paperwork.
  • After that, you need to file the documents to the Family Court of the county of your residence.
  • Once you file, make sure that your spouse is served. In HI, you have to hire a sheriff or process server to deliver the copies of forms to your ex.
  • Wait until the clerk places your case into a court calendar.
  • In this state, you don’t need to go to the court with an uncontested case. You need to wait until a judge reviews your paperwork and signs the Divorce Decree.

  • If you and your ex have kids, pay special attention to this step. First, check the state guidelines on child support calculations and custody. Next, find the forms covering child-related aspects. Finally, check if there are any parenting classes you are to attend before your divorce can be finalized.
  • Now you can fill out the forms. Be very careful at this stage and check out any unknown phrases or words in the documents in order to avoid making mistakes.
  • Proofread all your forms because any incorrect papers will be rejected by the court.

Getting a divorce in Hawaii with a child

Divorcing couples have plenty of issues to deal with in order to obtain the final decree. And if they have kids, there are even more matters they will have to reach an agreement on.

  • There are 2 types of custody available in Hawaii: legal (making kid-related decisions) and physical (living with a kid). Either can be granted to both spouses or only to one.
  • Parents are always encouraged to cooperate in terms of child custody, but if they are unable to reach any consensus, the custody decision will be up to the court.
  • The type of custody decided by the court is always based on the child’s best interests. However, child’s preferences are not taken into account in this state.
  • All the couples with minor children must take up parenting classes before the divorce can be finalized, and kids will need to take part in them as well.
  • In HI, custody can be modified upon one of the parent’s request if there was some additional information discovered or some circumstances were changed.
