Helping You Do What Is Right for Your Family

Not everyone will get arrested. Not everyone will declare bankruptcy. Nearly everyone will be affected by a family law matter. Divorce, custody battles, alimony, prenuptial agreements, or paternity actions are all life-changing legal procedures. They're also common; they could happen to anyone.

Legal issues involving your loved ones may be a challenging and stressful experience, but you do not have to face them alone. My firm, The Law Office of Steve Cedillos, has helped Honolulu residents resolve family law issues for more than 30 years. As a family law attorney in Honolulu, I've helped my clients create stable futures—even after many of them felt like they were facing hopeless situations.

Speak with my firm to learn your options in a free consultation. You wouldn't let an apprentice carpenter remodel your house, so why would you let a young lawyer handle a case that affects the rest of your life? Get the benefit of my experience and hard-won legal knowledge.

Call (808) 201-0496 or contact me online to get your free consultation. I'm available 24 hours a day for my clients, so call me anytime.

What Kind of Cases Does a Honolulu Family Attorney Handle?

Family law practice extends beyond divorce to embrace several other types of cases.

For example, a Honolulu family law attorney can represent you in a petition for guardianship of a child who needs your protection or for a grandparent's rights to visitation. If you were not married to the other parent at the time your child was born, I can assist you in a paternity action to secure child support payments or rights of visitation and child custody.

If you are preparing to marry and want to make provisions to safeguard yourself and your future spouse against the possibility of a messy divorce in the future, I can help to draft a prenuptial agreement, or a postnuptial agreement if you are already married.

To learn more about the services I provide, do not hesitate to contact my office now. Reach out to my firm at (808) 201-0496 today so that I can begin developing a plan of action for you.

  • "Would I hire him again? Absolutely."
    I hired Steve for a child custody case in 2021. I see all the reviews that say he is "mean" or "rude" - I would say that he is just blunt and straightforward. He isn't going to get your hopes up just to preserve your feelings. Great guy. he is willing to answer your questions before you even hire him and you can bet that he's honest. Do I think that a 5k retainer was a lot for my case? Yes, but it IS Hawaii and I did hire him 2 months before my actual trial date after going pro-se for a while. Would I hire him again? Absolutely.

  • "Steve Cedillos is definitely worth it."
    Steve Cedillos is definitely worth it. He’s very straightforward and gets the job done! Helped me get a TRO I probably wouldn’t have been able to do alone. Navigating the justice system isn’t easy, but his help made it so much easier along with a great outcome!! Thankful and grateful I came across him on Google. He was very responsive anytime I needed to reach him. Highly recommended.
