Maui County Child Custody Attorney

A Trusted, Results Driven Maui Custody Rights Lawyer

Whether a divorce is contested or uncontested, decisions about child custody can create emotionally charged battles between spouses. If not handled properly, custody disputes can also be unnecessarily difficult on the children themselves.

Whether you are entering divorce, legal separation or you are an unmarried couple with shared children, you can count on me, Kyle B. Coffman, Attorney at Law. As a Maui County child custody lawyer with nearly 24 years of extensive experience in complex custody disputes, I am dedicated to upholding your rights and defending your children's well-being.

Handling Every Aspect of the Case

While divorce and legal separation are difficult processes, it is possible to move forward while limiting the negative impact on your children. At my Maui law firm, I will take the time to understand your needs and the unique challenges your family faces.

I handle all aspects of child custody, including:

  • Parenting time, also known as visitation
  • Move-aways and relocations
  • Father's rights
  • Guardian ad litem appointments
  • Modifications to existing custody orders

Custody Law in Hawaii

If minor children are involved in a custody dispute, parents are required to attend a "Kids First" program. Children over five years old are required to attend the program with their parents. Many children enjoy this process because they are given the chance to express their feelings and participate in role-playing with other children of divorcing couples.

Depending on complexity, custody cases can take a few weeks to more than a year to be resolved. Regardless of the length of your case, I will remain a staunch advocate and work hard to achieve positive and long-lasting results.

Working With Custody Evaluators

Sometimes custody evaluators are assigned to a case. Their role is to investigate both homes, meet with both parents and the children, and help determine what custody situation will be best for the children.

I have significant experience dealing with custody evaluators, so I am able to advise my clients about what to expect and what information the evaluators will be seeking. I also counsel clients about how to properly testify in court to maximize their chances of success.
