In re Siegel

Ruling: 
Debt that was part of debtor's property settlement with former spouse was not a domestic support obligation and was a general unsecured claim.
Procedural posture: 
The debtor filed an objection to the $ 50,000 priority claim filed by his former spouse. The issue before the court was whether the claim was for a domestic support obligation as defined in 11 U.S.C.S. § 101(14A), and as such was a priority claim that, pursuant to 11 U.S.C.S. § 1322(a)(2) and § 1325(a)(1), had to be paid in full through the debtor's chapter 13 plan.
