Any time parents divorce in Hawaii, the issue of child custody is a major point of contention. This process is difficult for parents and children alike, and not everyone will have the opportunity to have their preferences met by the court. That said, it is helpful to understand how custody is decided under the law. A Kona lawyer could help advise you on what to expect.
When the courts make a decision regarding custody, they do so with the best interest of the child in mind. That does not mean you don’t have rights as a parent, but your preferences will be second to the needs of your children.
The attorneys at Olson & Sons understand how important these issues are. The decision of the court in a child custody dispute could reshape the relationship you have with your children. Reach out right away for your free consultation with a Kona lawyer.
