Caiti J. Bunger v. Brandon M. Smith (In re Smith), Ch. 7, BK19-41985-TLS, A20-4009-TLS (Sept. 11, 2020)

The court granted summary judgment to the debtor’s former spouse, finding the debt owed by the debtor to equitably divide the parties’ property pursuant to the divorce decree is excepted from discharge under § 523(a)(15). The non-dischargeable amount includes the attorney’s fees awarded by the state court in connection with a contempt order entered in the plaintiff’s favor when the debtor failed to make an installment payment on the property judgment when due.
