Hawaii Alimony Law

HomeAlimony HawaiiHawaii Alimony Law

Several subjective factors like the length of the marriage, financial conditions, and the earning capacities are considered in the Hawaii alimony law to award alimony to a party in a divorce.

But there should be certain basic eligibilities met by either of the parties to request for the spousal support.

The eligibilities include:

  • The prime factor in obtaining spousal support in Hawaii is a valid legal marriage, without any written documents on waiver for spousal support.
  • Also the divorce laws of Hawaii consider a party, with no legal marriage but a child born of the relationship eligible to obtain alimony.
  • After all, the court also considers the ability of the party to pay his/her ex-spouse the determined support amount.
