Mindful Divorce Hawai’i keeps your family assets where they belong – out of the court system and under your family’s control. We offer a financial analysis and help you and your partner through decisions on the division of assets.

Your sessions start with a comprehensive look at your financial documentation. Each party has a one-on-one session with our certified divorce financial analyst to discuss short and long-term financial goals and to ascertain the assets, health care, budgeting, income needs, and much more.

Finances are a heated topic in a divorce and families believe their only option left is expensive litigation This isn’t true. Using Mindful Divorce Hawaii services will better prepare both parties for the money conversations, asset division, and understanding the laws of the State of Hawaii and how they apply to your particular situation.

We provide answers to pressing questions like,

And, we make sure you don’t fall into common mistakes such as:

When you walk away from your financial planning sessions each party will have a better understanding of their financial options and a written plan for moving forward post-divorce.



Once you have completed your financial analysis and have decided on asset division, Mindful Divorce Hawaii will help you finalize an uncontested divorce by affidavit with the family courts of the State of Hawaii.

The forms will reflect the decisions made and agreed upon by both parties. Neither you nor your spouse will ever need to appear in court or in front of a judge. Once the forms are completed and signed by both parties they go before the family court for a judge’s review. The process for finalization takes between 6-10 weeks.


Some issues simply cannot be agreed on through the Mindful Divorce Hawaii process. Resolution for these will require mediation, an add-on service that is billed at an hourly rate using a third-party neutral. Mediation may involve joint or individual sessions to discuss options and solutions that are acceptable to both parties. Depending on your particular needs we employ the following styles of mediation:


FACILITATIVE MEDIATION asks questions rather than giving opinions to the outcome of the disagreement. This process is conducted by the mediator, but the parties are in charge of the final outcome.


EVALUATIVE MEDIATION points out the strengths and weaknesses of each parties case and offers a typical course of action a judge might decide on. This type of mediation also includes an evaluation of each parties legal positions including a cost/benefit analysis of settlement versus the need for in-court litigation if an agreement cannot be reached.


TRANSFORMATIVE MEDIATION recognizes each person’s perspective, empowers each party in the conflict, and seeks to promote constructive future interactions. It is designed to change how the parties involved interact with each other to obtain a peaceful resolution to disagreements.

Mindful Divorce Hawai’i mediators are lawyers serving as third-parties neutrals pursuant to rule 2.4 of the Hawai’i rules of professional. As such THEY DO NOT REPRESENT EITHER PARTY.  Parties to a mindful divorce are always advised to seek independent legal counsel and may proceed pro se (without representation) when seeking confirmation of their uncontested divorce by an affidavit from the Hawai’i family court system.
