    Default the meaning of 'trouble for'

    Hi, Teachers.

    What's the meaning of the collocation 'trouble for'?

    For example, it is a big trouble for him.
    Does this sentence mean 'he has the big trouble' or 'the big trouble is because of him or caused by him'?

    Thanks in advanced.
