In re Durrance (04-51149, Adv. No. 04-05094)

In a § 523(a)(5) and (a)(15) action, the court found that the debtor’s divorce obligation relating to providing shelter for his ex-wife and children, including mortgage and utility payments, were in the nature of support and nondischargeable. The debtor’s obligation on a joint tax liability was a property settlement that could be discharged because the debtor lacked the ability to pay it.
