The quick answer is no. Maintenance is a domestic support obligation. A domestic support obligation must meet four criteria:
- It must be due to a spouse, former spouse or child.
- It must be in the nature of maintenance or support of such spouse, former spouse or child.
- It must be established or subject to establishment as a result of a separation agreement, divorce judgment or property settlement agreement subject to a Court Order.
- It must not be assigned to a non-governmental entity unless the obligation is assigned voluntarily for the purpose of collecting the debt.
