A Practical Guide to Divorce in Hawaii
- About the Book
Are you or is someone you know
– contemplating or in the midst of a divorce?
– having post-divorce problems?
– living with someone?
This new edition of A Practical Guide to Divorce in Hawaii explains in clear, nonlegal language current Hawaii family law and how it may affect your life. The author, an experienced divorce lawyer, presents the most recent developments in child support guidelines; laws affecting property division, military retirement, alimony taxes; and court procedures, including the requirement of mediation in all cases.
Offering dozens of suggestions on how to negotiate a fair settlement with your spouse, it answers questions about alimony, child custody and support, property division, and tax and debt responsibilities. An entire chapter is devoted to the special problems of military personnel. There is even a chapter on pre- and postmarital agreements and palimony. Not intended as a substitute for an attorney, this book will, however, give you a broad understanding of the divorce process in Hawaii and the knowledge of how to fully protect your rights.
Originally published in 1990.
