The final phase of the new $124.5 million Kapolei Court Complex will open on Monday.

The complex will house 282 employees who work in 1st Circuit Family Court, the Juvenile Detention Home and Waianae District Court.

Most of the courthouse employees are packing this week for the over-the-weekend move from 1st Circuit Family Court on Punchbowl Street. They include clerks, bailiffs, secretaries, court administrators and judges. Eighty-one family court workers will remain downtown, according to Marsha Kitagawa, public affairs officer for the Hawaii State Judiciary.

Workers in the Juvenile Detention Home started in Kapolei on March 1, while employees of the Waianae District Court began March 22.

The Judiciary spent $24,886 to move the family court, Juvenile Detention Home and Waianae District Courts to Kapolei over three separate weekends.
