Possibly. Depends on prior proceedings and the amount of the raise.

Possibly, but as Mr. Slater stated, it depends upon the amount of the raise. If alimony was agreed to, and designated as "non-modifiable", then you might be up the creek without a paddle. Even if a reduction is justified, it would have to be pursued via a Supplemental Petition For Modification. At least consult with an experienced family law attorney.

Possibly. more information would help. A raise of substantial nature would help you a lot.

It really would depend on the final judgment wording. It the final judgment does not state NON-Modifiable then yes you could file for a supplemental petition for modification.
