Hawaii Alimony & Support

Hawaii Alimony & Support

Alimony / Spousal Support in your Honolulu Divorce Case

Alimony is never a guarantee in Hawaii Family Court. If you are seeking alimony, you will need to be able to demonstrate a need for it. If you can demonstrate a need for alimony, then the Family Court will need to determine whether your spouse can afford to pay you alimony / spousal support, and for how long. If your spouse is seeking alimony from you, the Hawaii Family Court should not order you to pay more than you can afford.

Concern over finances is one of the many reasons that divorce is so stressful, especially here in Hawaii where the cost of living is so high. Your spouse may have been the “bread winner”, which means you will need to support yourself financially after your Hawaii divorce is final. Your spouse may be unable to work due to a disability, or his/her employment options could be limited due to lack of education, or work experience. These are some of the reasons that Alimony, or spousal support, may be an issue in your Hawaii Divorce case.
