In re Thomas

(Sixth Circuit B.A.P. Issued June 3, 2014, appeal from Bankr. E.D. Ky.)

The Sixth Circuit B.A.P. affirms the bankruptcy court’s order overruling the debtor’s objection to his ex-wife’s priority domestic support claim for $12,500.  The debtor’s obligation to pay half of a mortgage was not a property settlement, but rather is in the nature of a domestic support obligation (as defined by the Bankruptcy Code) based on the intent of the parties in making the agreement.  Opinion below.
