Honolulu Grandparents’ Rights Lawyer

Safeguarding Your Relationship with Your Grandchildren

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 grandparents’ rights attorney.

Grandparents' Visitation & Child Custody Rights

In some situations, parents do not permit the grandparents to visit the grandchildren. Whether the reason is based on religion, personal values, or other differences, the grandparent can legally fight for visitation rights.

At the Law Office of Steve Cedillos, I have over 25 years of experience and have helped countless individuals secure positive results in family situations.

    "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. 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.
