In Hawaii, a Court may grant a divorce if it finds that the marriage is irretrievably broken, if the parties have lived separate and apart under a formal separation decree that has expired, if the parties have lived separate and apart under a formal separation decree for at least 2 years or, if the parties have lived apart continuously for at least 2 years and there is no reasonable likelihood that cohabitation will be resumed. (Hawaii Statutes Chapter 580, Section 41)
