What are the Laws in Hawaii about How Marital Property Will be Distributed After Divorce?
In Hawaii, a Court will divide marital property equitably, considering: the respective merits of the parties, the relative financial abilities of the parties, the condition in which each party will be left by the divorce, the burdens imposed upon either party for the benefit of the children of the parties, and all other circumstances of the case. (Hawaii Statutes Chapter 580, Section 47)
