If you have come to the conclusion that you want a divorce, it's time to start taking action to kickstart the process. Before filing for a divorce, it is wise to start learning more about the law, and especially about the state-specific laws that apply in Hawaii.
In Hawaii, filing for divorce means that all marital ties will be severed. This will also mean that assets and debts will be divided between spouses. If the divorcing couple has children, child custody, support and visitation will need to be established. Alimony, otherwise known as spousal support, may also be deemed necessary by the courts.
