Why does the military let BAQ entitlement counted as pay in divorce court
1 attorney answer
The Ohio child support guidelines are based upon by the "gross income" of both parents. If a parent receives free housing, or say a free car thru business, their income is increased by the value of that perk. Those folks in essence have a benefit equivelent to more income that may be invisible for tax purposes. So, the legislature wanted to even the playing field and treat all fairly by adding in these perks into the support calculations. Hopefully, this helps you understand this situation better!
