JURISDICTIONAL END OF MARRIAGE DATE: Date of Final Separation in Contemplation of Divorce.

STATE TYPE FOR PENSION EVALUATION: Hawaii is an "equitable distribution" state. Upon granting a divorce, the court will divide the estate of the parties, personal or mixed, whether community, joint or separate as it deems just and equitable after consideration of the following factors:

1. The respective merits of the parties; 2. The relative abilities of the parties; 3. The condition in which each party will be left by the divorce; 4. The burdens imposed upon either party for the benefit of any children of the marriage, and; 5. All other circumstances of the case.
