§ 522(c)

In re Wycuff

Bankruptcy debtors, a husband and wife, claimed a homestead exemption in their residence to which the wife held sole legal title, including the husband's dower interest in the property. Creditors, the debtors'mortgagees, objected to the exemption.
Ruling: 
Debtors were only entitled to a homestead exemption as to the property's legal title in relation to the trustee's interest pursuant to the debtor husband's dower interest, but the debtors' homestead exemption was disallowed as to the property's equitable interest since the creditor's mortgage existed premarriage and thus was superior to the claimed exemption.
