I am very sorry for your family's situation.if he is given custosty with a pending appeal in VA from VA, will Hawaii let him take the childnot necessarily
. If he successfully wins jurisdiction begin in VA, then what he wins is the ability to have the custody matter simply heard in VA (under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction And Enforcement Act), but this does not necessarily mean that he would receive custody.
If he is successful in consolidating the jurisdiction in VA, then he would still have too show that it is "in the best interest of the child
" that he be the custodial parent
, which he may not be able to do.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.IMPORTANT
