Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 30, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Michael Jacobsen, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (16 pages)

            Arnold Bingaman appeals certain provisions of the decree dissolving his marriage to Heather Bingaman.  Arnold argues the incomes of both parties were miscalculated for support purposes, the district court miscalculated the value of allegedly dissipated assets, and he should not have been required to pay past-due taxes.  Heather requests an award of appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s spousal- and child- support awards, finding the district court correctly calculated the parties’ incomes.  We also affirm the district court’s calculation of assets Arnold dissipated and the default and remedy regarding the Union County farm tax payments.  We award Heather $15,000.00 in appellate attorney fees.
