(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Jan. 4, 2016)
The bankruptcy court denies the United States Trustee’s (“UST”) motion to dismiss the Chapter 7 bankruptcy case under 11 U.S.C. § 707(b). The UST argued that the debtor’s monthly expenses were excessive. The court finds that the expenses are not excessive considering the debtor’s current employment demands significant expenses for travel and clothing. The compensation warranted the expenses, and the debtor was required to travel for weekend visits with her children following her 2013 divorce. Opinion below.
