KUWAIT CITY, Aug 8: The Court of Appeals ordered a financially-stable Kuwaiti citizen to pay a maintenance cost of KD 750 per month to his American-born exwife continuously for her five children, and the monthly salary of a housemaid, which is KD 100, the expenses for the recruitment of the housemaid, which is KD 1,000, and transportation expenses in monthly installments of KD 200 per month. With this ruling, the Personal Status Court’s Appeals Chamber issued its ruling in favor of the “citizen of American origin” to amend the ruling issued by the Court of First Instance to obligate the husband “a well-off Kuwaiti citizen” to this alimony.
As per the lawsuit filed by Lawyer Fatima Al-Shatti on behalf of the “American-born” divorced woman, she said her client is divorced from the defendant, prompting her to file for alimony as her right, given that she bore five children for her ex-husband. Al-Shatti demanded that the custody of her children be endorsed, obligate the defendant to refrain from contacting her client, and obligate him to pay her monthly expenses for food and clothing in proportion to the degree of his well-being from the date of filing the lawsuit, the monthly wages of a house-help for her and her children from the date of filing the lawsuit, and the expenses for the recruitment of the house-help as estimated by the court.
