            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, James S. Heckerman, Judge.  AFFIRMED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (6 pages)

            Harold Widdison appeals various district court orders in the ongoing litigation following the dissolution of his marriage to Amy Widdison (now Amy Dendy).  OPINION HOLDS: Harold is not entitled to reimbursement of fees or costs incurred when the Iowa Child Support Recovery Unit seized funds from his retirement account.  We affirm the district court’s award of Amy’s attorney fees and denial of Harold’s motion for sanctions.  We remand to the district court to determine the amount of Amy’s appellate attorney fee award.
