Chadwick Allen Poole, Ch. 13, BK12-81843-TJM (Apr. 3, 2013)

The court sustained the confirmation objection of the debtor’s former spouse, finding that the debtor’s obligation to pay a joint debt and a portion of his former wife’s attorney’s fees were non-dischargeable support obligations that needed to be accounted for in the plan of reorganization. Likewise, the Collett provision in the parties’ dissolution decree, whereby an additional modicum of alimony was awarded subject to modification if the debtor failed to pay any portion of the property settlement or marital debt assigned to him, rendered the property settlement debt a non-dischargeable support obligation as well.
