Bankruptcy – Chapter 13 – Household Size – Domestic Relations – Parent & Child – Split Custody – Children & Stepchildren – First Impression (access required)

Zimmer It’s not just “heads on the beds” that count when a bankruptcy court is trying to determine “household” size for a Chapter 13 debtor in a “blended” household that includes children and step-children who are part-time residents, but the “economic unit,” the 4th Circuit says in this first-impression case for all circuit courts; debtor may amend her plan to reflect a household of five, not seven.
