How to Serve the Other Parent (Same Island) in a Paternity Action
Authored By: Legal Aid Society of Hawaii
This brochure will help you if you have started or will be starting a paternity/custody/visitation action and need information on how to serve the other parent if s/he is on the same island as you.
Filing for paternity/custody can be a very dangerous time for abuse victims. If you fear for your safety, talk to an attorney before filing for paternity/custody.
If the other parent lives on a different island from you OR lives on the mainland, do not use this brochure.
If you cannot find the other parent, do not use this brochure.
This brochure only tells you how to serve the other parent in a paternity action. It is not informative on the entire paternity court process.
