Court of Appeals

Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 20, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Crawford County, Steven J. Andreasen, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (10 pages)

            Tamra Moeller appeals the economic provisions in the parties’ dissolution decree.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the parties’ premarital agreement is not enforceable because Galyn Moeller did not provide accurate information on his financial disclosure form.  The district court made alternative findings concerning the division of the parties’ property if the premarital agreement was found to be unenforceable, and we find this division is equitable.  We also affirm the court’s decision not to award spousal support to Tamra and to order Galyn to pay part of her trial attorney fees.  We do not award any appellate attorney fees.  We affirm the decision of the district court, although we modify it to find the parties’ premarital agreement is not enforceable.
