If you're going through a divorce, or you've recently settled your case, then you may think that all the courtroom battles are finally over for good. This isn't necessarily the case though. If you receive child support or alimony, and you've recently found out that your ex has turned down a pay raise, then you may be back in an Ohio courtroom very soon.
Although it may sound counterintuitive for someone to be offered and decline a pay raise, it's not unheard of. There are various reasons someone may turn down an increase in salary. Individuals often do it so that their income doesn't fall within a higher tax bracket or so that they can continue receiving government benefits. Others do so they won't have to make higher alimony payments or pay more in child support than they already do.
