Child Support in Hawaii
Family courts in Hawaii decide how much the non-custodial is required to pay through the state's child support guidelines. The court will change some guidelines if situations like calculated support would exceed seventy percent of the non-custodial parent's net income, if the non-custodial parent supports other children, etc. In Hawaii, the custodial parent can get a petition once every three years for to review the child support awards for adjustments without having to show a change in circumstance. Child support guidelines follow a "Melson Formula" which is calculated by parent's combined income, the calculated child "need" for primary support, standard of living adjustment, and then the child support credits and calculation.
