            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Monica Wittig, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Vogel, P.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Vogel, P.J.  (9 pages)

            Lynette Heims appeals from the district court’s order terminating Brad Heims’s spousal support obligation and modifying the child-support order from their 2014 Illinois dissolution of marriage decree.  She argues a substantial change in circumstances has not occurred, continuing the spousal and child support orders is equitable, and the district court should have awarded her attorney fees.  Both parties request appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We agree with the court’s termination of spousal support and modification of child support.  We also find no decision on trial attorney fees to review, and we decline to award appellate attorney fees.
