Effective Monday, March 29, 2010, Oahu’s Family Court will be operating out of the new Kapolei Courthouse. All hearings will be held there, not at the downtown Punchbowl Street facility!
The new courthouse is located at 4675 Kapolei Parkway (do not Google this address–it shows up incorrectly on their map). The easiest way to get there is to take Exit 1 off of the H-1 freeway (just past the Makakilo/Kapolei offramp) so as to bypass the Kapolei business district, where the traffic can be heavy. The courthouse is directly across the street from Costco. Parking is 100% metered, so make sure you bring lots of quarters. And because the Detention Home and Waianae District are also there and in operation, parking can get rather tight. Please be patient as the bugs are worked out.
