Denied visitation? Preserve your relationship and rights

Is your child's other parent denying you appropriate visitation with your children? Despite the fact that it's important for children to maintain a relationship with both their parents whenever possible, custodial parents will sometimes see fit to deprive non-custodial parents of their visitation rights.

Should you consider parallel parenting?

There's been a cultural shift in the nation's family courts toward "co-parenting" after divorce -- where both parents continue to have roughly equal responsibility for their children's upbringing -- instead of one parent having primary custody. This has brought about a greater need for cooperation between divorced parents.

What do Hawaii judges consider in child custody cases?

Divorcing parents who are working out a child custody agreement are expected to consider, first and foremost, what's in the best interests of their children.
