Hawaii Visitation Rights

Child Visitation in your Honolulu Custody Case

In Divorce and Paternity cases in Hawaii, reasonable visitation is usually awarded to the non-custodial parent. Visitation is usually awarded by agreement of the parties, or by the Hawaii Family Court after a trial or hearing. The parties will usually agree to a fixed visitation schedule, but sometimes they will agree that visitation will be “by agreement of the parties”, particularly when one or both parents have work schedules that change frequently.

Visitation can become a contested issue in Hawaii for a number of reasons, including the custodial parent’s refusal to follow the visitation schedule, or because the parent with visitation believes that there has been a change in circumstances such that it is in now in the children’s best interest that he or she be awarded joint, or sole physical custody. Perhaps one parent wants to relocate from Hawaii with the children, or has become addicted to drugs or alcohol. These are just a few of the reasons that could warrant a change in child visitation in Hawaii.
