Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 27, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Adria Kester, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Chicchelly, J., and Potterfield, S.J.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (11 pages)

            Joshua James Shirbroun appeals the modification of a default decree dissolving his marriage to Trina Lynn Shirbroun.  Joshua contends the district court should have terminated his spousal support obligation and that it incorrectly calculated his child support payments.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Trina has demonstrated an ongoing need for spousal support and Joshua has failed to prove a substantial change in circumstances from the child support ordered, we affirm the district court’s modification of the dissolution decree.  We furthermore award Trina $7500 in appellate attorney fees.
