CONSIDERING GETTING A DIVORCE IN HAWAII?

When you decide to divorce in Hawaii the first step is to choose whether or not you want to hire a lawyer to prepare your divorce papers or do your own divorce papers and file your own divorce. It always depends on your situation, and whether you and your spouse are in agreement and can work together to get the job done. If your divorce is uncontested and you are both willing to sign off on the divorce, then doing your own divorce to save money is certainly an ideal option.

Advantages of Doing Your Own Divorce in Hawaii (Filing Pro Se)

Filing a Pro Se divorce in Hawaii has the same rules and procedures as ones filed by a lawyer, except you complete and file the divorce paperwork on your own. 3StepDivorceTM for Hawaii makes it easy for you to prepare your own paperwork, which is ready to sign and file with the Clerk at the courthouse.

If you decide to take the "DIY" divorce route and represent yourself, make sure you and your spouse do all you can to keep your emotions out of the decision making. You must be able to reach an agreement in an uncontested fashion. You should only ever consider filing Pro Se if you and your spouse are getting an uncontested divorce.

Expense is often the main reason couples file a Pro Se divorce in Hawaii.

1. Cost. In Hawaii, filing Pro Se, you are usually only paying your court filing fees, which range from $215 to $265 plus any fees associated with document preparation. With 3StepDivorceTM you are looking at a total cost for your divorce to be around $500-$600. Hiring a lawyer in Hawaii can easily cost you $10,000 for a contested divorce, even for an uncontested divorce it can be as much as $3000 depending on the issues.

2. Control. Pro Se divorce filers in Hawaii who agree on all the key issues can easily get an uncontested divorce without a lawyer. The filer takes the completed and signed divorce paperwork to the courthouse where the judge reviews, signs and returns it to finalize the divorce. Typically you and spouse do not go to court, or even talk to the Judge. The Hawaii divorce process is easy, fast, and affordable. It also removes uncertainty from your divorce, because you make all the decisions instead of a Judge or lawyer who may negotiate on your behalf. Couples can do their own uncontested divorce whether or not they have children.

3. Ease. After the divorce papers are filed in a Pro Se action, the divorce is placed on a special court calendar called the Uncontested Divorce by Affidavit calendar. The Judge reviews the documents outside of court, and if there are no questions or concerns, he or she signs the Divorce Decree and returns certified copies to the couple in the mail within four to six weeks. Hawaii has streamlined the uncontested divorce process since many spouses choose to file themselves and are also in transit as active duty military members.

Deciding to Hire a Lawyer for Your Divorce in Hawaii

A complicated marital estate decreases the likelihood of an amicable divorce, so the best course may mean finding an experienced family law attorney who can make clear your rights and responsibilities in the marriage and divorce. Based on this, you may decide that a lawyer can help negotiate a fair settlement which is not always easy when your emotions are involved.

One of the best ways to find a lawyer is the word-of-mouth recommendation of a trusted friend or family member who has had experience with divorce. You can also turn to the Hawaii State Bar Association (http://www.http://hsba.org/). The State Bar as a Lawyer Referral & Information Service (LRIS) that will help you locate a lawyer by location and practice area. The office for the State Bar Association is allocated at Alakea Corporate Tower 1100 Alakea Street, Suite 1000 Honolulu, HI 96813, phone:808-537-1868.

Before making an initial consultation appointment, whether in person or by phone, make sure you are aware of any fees involved. Many lawyers provide initial consultations for free, but not all.
