About Our Hawaii Family Law Firm

Family law encompasses a variety of matters concerning Hawaii’s families. Some of theHawaii family law matters our Honolulu family lawyers continue to successfully help our clients with include the following:

  • Divorce: The process of legally dissolving your marital relationship involves technical legal obligations that should be handled by an attorney to ensure they’re completed correctly and in your best interests, including dividing your marital property, and properly allocating your marital debts, determining whether one should pay spousal support to the other, resolving child custody and support issues and more.
  • Child custody: Finalizing legal and physical custody decisions is made simpler with a Honolulu family law attorney who can help you draft appropriate documents designed and intended to protect your children while reflecting the mutual agreements of both parents.
  • Premarital agreements: Our Honolulu family lawyers are available to help couples identify and allocate their assets and debts before they marry to best ensure that each party retains ownership of his/her property going into the marriage, and if necessary, upon divorce.
  • Spousal abuse and temporary restraining orders: Our attorneys recognize the strength and courage involved in deciding to file for a TRO and are available to our clients to handle the process for you with speed and discretion. Your safety is our priority.
  • Guardianship: Designating a guardian for a minor or incapacitated adult is a process that requires thoughtful consideration. Our Honolulu family law attorneys care for your family like they are our own, and as such, devote the necessary time to ensure your loved ones get a guardian to help them continue living the best life possible going forward.

Whatever it is you’re facing, our Honolulu family lawyers are armed with the relevant legal knowledge and courtroom experience to help you from start to finish.
