Authored By: Hawaii State Judiciary
Contents

Information

A motion for Pre-Decree Relief, and the appropriate attachments, are used to request every type of available relief in a case where a Divorce Decree has not yet entered. For example, you are wanting a divorce but need temporary custody arrangements made while the divorce is happening. 

A motion for Post-Decree Relief, and the appropriate attachments, are used to request every type of available relief in a case where a Divorce Decree has already entered. For example, you just got a divorce (within 60 days), but you suddenly need to change your custody arrangements.
