The Comment offers a uniform approach to the interpretation of the domestic support obligation 'payee requirement' by analyzing the various interpretive strategies courts have used both pre- and post-2005 and carefully considering the policy and the corresponding congressional intent of the amendments related to domestic support. Ultimately, the Comment suggests a solution that provides courts with a process of deciding domestic support obligation cases more uniformly and comprehensively: the judicially developed exception to the plain meaning rule.
