Honolulu Family Law Attorney
Fighting for the Rights of Grandparents
Hawaii allows grandparents to petition for visitation rights of their grandchildren if the child's residence is in the state. Part of the Hawaii code §571-46.3 discusses the visitation rights of the grandparents, which essentially allows visitation as long as it is in the best interest of the child. Those two factors will determine whether the grandparent is permitted visitation rights to their grandchild or grandchildren. The grandparent can also file a petition for an order of reasonable visitation rights. These cases are often complex, but can be quickly resolved with the help of a skilled Honolulu family law attorney.
