  • Gary In Missouri Says:

    "The price was so good, I had to do my divorce with you. I didn't want to pay a lawyer $800 dollars to do an uncontested divorce. We already knew what we wanted on how to divide up the house. I'm grateful I found you when I did. Going through the stress of a divorce is hard enough without having financial stress as well. Thank you so much."

Hawaii Residency Requirement
According to the Hawaii Divorce Laws and Hawaii Divorce Guidelines, to get divorced in Hawaii, the spouse filing the case must have been a resident of of the state for at least 3 months.

Time To Divorce
A divorce will not be final until either one of the spouses has been a resident of Hawaii for 6 months.

Place of Divorce (Venue)
The case may be filed in:
(1) the judicial district where the plaintiff resides
(2) the judicial district where the spouses last lived together

Simplified or Special Divorce Procedures
The "irretrievable breakdown of the marriage" may be shown by both spouses stating so in an affidavit or by 1 spouse stating so in an affidavit and the other spouse not denying it. The court, in such cases, may waive a hearing in uncontested divorces and grant the divorce based on the affidavit.

Hawaii Grounds for Divorce
Grounds for a No-Fault divorce:
(1) Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage
(2) living separate and apart without cohabitation for 2 years

Grounds for a Fault based divorce:
(1) Legal separation and there has been no reconciliation

 

NOTE: Regardless of the reason of the breakdown of the marriage or the reason for filing for divorce in Hawaii, the Divorce Do It Yourself Service will do divorces on an "Agreed" basis or a “Default” basis.

  • An Agreed Divorce , defined by Hawaii divorce guidelines and Hawaii divorce laws, is a scenario where the spouses agree on the terms of the divorce such as Hawaii property distribution, Hawaii child support, or Hawaii child custody. Most of our clients (75%) prefer the Agreed Divorce method and both spouses sign the divorce papers and are agreed to the terms of divorce.

  • A Default Divorce , according to the Hawaii divorce guidelines and Hawaii divorce laws, is a divorce where the other spouse doesn’t sign the Hawaii Divorce forms or Hawaii divorce papers, he/she doesn’t do anything at all with the divorce. They simply default on the case and the spouse who files for divorce gets whatever was asked for in the original paperwork.

Hawaii Child Custody Laws
Simple Definitions: (source: divorce process in Hawaii and HI divorce laws)

  • Visitation is the plan the spouses have on where the children will live and when the children will see the other spouse
  • Legal Custody is the decision ability of the parents in the lives of the children. Such as, where the children will attend school and which church they will go to.
  • Physical Custody pertains to the place where the children will live and which parent they live with.

Hawaii Child Custody in a shared arrangement, in one form or another, is the preferred method of our Hawaii divorce customers. If a sole custody arrangement is to be considered, then there is usually a reason agreed upon by both parties that one parent is to have the children. Usually the financial status of a parent is not to be considered for allocating any parental rights and responsibilities. Shared Custody or Sole Child Custody may be awarded according to the best interests of the child.

Hawaii Child Support Laws
If the parents are unable to agree to an amount of child support, there are guidelines that determine the amount of support based on the Hawaii Child Support Guidelines. The guideline amount is presumed to arrive at an amount of support that is in the child's best interest. But, most divorcing spouses agree to a figure on their own, that will work just fine. Also, in most situations, -0- Child Support is OK if both spouses are working and can manage. This is also true for a Legal Separation in Hawaii.

Court Filing Fees
The Court filing fees are not included in the price of our service. To file for divorce in Hawaii, fees must usually be paid when you file the Hawaii divorce forms and Hawaii divorce papers at your county courthouse. These fees vary between County to County, so it is best to call them and ask what the fees are in your County. Regardless of whether you are going through a divorce service, using a Hawaii divorce kit, using a divorce attorney (or divorce lawyer), or doing a nearly free divorce in Hawaii, you will almost always be the one to cover the court fees which is standard procedure.

Hawaii Divorce Laws for Property Distribution
In an Uncontested "Agreed Divorce" or "Default Divorce" the property is divided so that both parties agree to the division. The main concern here is to agree to the property division so that it doesn’t create a fight that one party will want to go to a Hawaii divorce lawyer or divorce attorney to make the case into a Contested Divorce. Then you will have to incur the fees of a lawyer too.

  • Debts Most divorcing spouses set out who will pay what debts as part of their marital settlement agreement during the divorce process, and close all of their joint accounts.
  • Hawaii Alimony Laws (Hawaii Spousal Support Laws) In an Uncontested Divorce, Alimony may be awarded to either spouse for their support and maintenance after the divorce. Both parties must agree to it since most spouses are working, alimony (if awarded at all), is usually for a shorter period of time, and smaller amount than in the past. In the Hawaii divorce laws for alimony, it is possible for alimony to be paid in a lump sum payment of money or a payment plan. Alimony is not required for a person to get divorced in Hawaii.

Missing Spouse
If you do not know where your spouse is or cannot locate him/her after diligent effort, you may still get a divorce in Hawaii. It may involve the extra expense of running a newspaper ad or something similar. We help you through the process.

Wife’s Last Name Change
The wife last name may change if she chooses and receive her Maiden Name back during the divorce. Our Divorce Service includes this name change in our service for FREE.
