Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pocahontas County, Angela L. Doyle, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (9 pages)

            Chad Boysen appeals the support provisions and award of attorney fees in a temporary order entered during the proceedings to dissolve his marriage to Ann Boysen.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court appropriately used the parties’ 2020 incomes in determining child support.  Based on the parties’ respective earnings and needs, as well as the district court’s credibility findings, the award of spousal support was equitable.  The award of $2500.00 in temporary attorney fees is neither unreasonable nor untenable.  But we deny both parties’ requests for appellate attorney fees.
