While we work on the application forms, we instruct the client to get acquainted with the law of the land. We would advise you as well to get familiar with adoption laws in Hawaii. In fact, we have included a few paragraphs with some detail of Hawaiian adoption laws below for your convenient study. All the basics are included so you can get a comprehensive view of the law that can affect your petition.


Step parent adoption in Hawaii is done with considerable ease with very few conditions that you need to satisfy as the petitioner while many others, some of which are still part of the law in many other states, have been peeled off. One such law is the home residency requirement for adoptees prior to the final hearing on the petition. Your petition for step parent adoption in Hawaii (and child adoption in Hawaii) is exempt from this condition. There is also no requirement for a specific period of time you should live in the state before being eligible for signing up for adoption.

In short, child adoption in Hawaii only really requires you to get proper consents. In case you are adopting your stepchild, you need the consent of your spouse as their natural parent. In case of a foster child, you need the parents’ written consent. Consent of the child is also required if they are 10 or older except when the court waives this condition.


Adult adoption in Hawaii is also quite simple in terms of the legal process involved. As long as you can provide the consent from the adult you are adopting and their spouse, you can go ahead and submit your petition for adult adoption in Hawaii courts with the application forms.

Since the law of the state makes no clear distinction in unrelated or relative adoption in Hawaii, it is safe to assume you can file your petition for this type of adoption as well. However, it would be prudent to make sure you are adopting a relative who is in need of family care, such as an ill or disabled elderly person.
