Kids First is a mandatory program for divorcing and/or separating families with children. Failure to attend may result in your case being delayed or denied pending completion of the class.

Have attended a Kids First Hawai‘i class in the last two years
Live out of the State of Hawai‘i
Are moving out of state or deploying per military order before your scheduled class
Are incarcerated or reside in a residential treatment facility
If you might miss your assigned Kids First class for any reason please call as early as possible to reschedule. Class availability is on a first come, first served basis.
Written documentation will be needed to reschedule if your reason involves moving out of Hawai‘i before your class.
Kaua‘i, Maui and Hawai‘i Island also have divorce parent education programs. These programs offer the same services. Please call them directly to schedule your class:
