Kimberly L. Hernandez, Ch. 13, BK12-40770-TJM (Nov. 8, 2012)

The court sustained the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services’ objection to confirmation because the department’s claim is a domestic support obligation entitled to priority. The claim is for reimbursement of an overpayment of child support to the debtor for a child who was in foster care at the time, and under state law, the right to receive support payments was assigned to the department as reimbursement for the cost of care.
