Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jan 25, 2023

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Sean McPartland, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Tabor, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (8 pages)

            William Kirsch appeals the modification decree eliminating his award of traditional spousal support.  Both parties request appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: Given the substantial change in circumstances, we agree with the district court that modification was proper.  But we modify the decree to reduce William’s spousal support to $450 per month.  We decline to award appellate attorney fees to either party.
