In re Forkish

Ruling: 
Debtor's former spouse did not violate stay by seeking determination of amount of attorneys' fees owed in state support proceeding.
Procedural posture: 
Based upon a motion filed by a chapter 13 debtor, the court issued an order directing his former spouse and her attorney to show cause why sanctions should not be imposed against them for alleged violations of the automatic stay under 11 U.S.C.S. § 362 in connection with state court proceedings for attorney's fees arising from a child support dispute. The debtor also filed an objection to his former spouse's claim for the attorney's fees.
