Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Ida County, Jeffery L. Poulson, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., and Ahlers and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (10 pages)

            Jodi Snyder appeals from the decree dissolving her marriage to Adam Snyder.  She argues Adam dissipated assets, the district court should have awarded her trial attorney fees and seeks appellate attorney fees.  Adam also requests appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: Adam dissipated marital net worth by incurring additional unexplained credit card debit after the parties separated.  As a result, we modify the decree’s equalization award to Jodi.  The district court did not abuse its discretion in denying Jodi’s request for attorney fees.  We deny Adam’s request for appellate attorney fees.  We award Jodi one-third of her reasonable and necessary appellate attorney fees and remand to the district court to determine that amount.
