Are Food Stamps a "Domestic Support Obligation"?
Yep, at least in one district court in Wisconsin. The department said the chapter 13 debtor had been overpaid and it wanted the repayment obligation to be a priority. The bankruptcy court said no way, sho-hey, the District Court reversed. See Wisconsin Dept. of Workforce Development v. Ratliff, 2008 WL 2345855 (E.D.Wis.).
