Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 12, 2018

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Carla T. Schemmel, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Potterfield and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (9 pages)

            Amy Berg appeals the economic provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Mark Berg.  She contends (1) the district court should have assigned her one of the two tax exemptions for the children; (2) the district court’s property division was inequitable, and (3) she should have been awarded more trial attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the dissolution decree as modified.  We order Mark to pay $2000 toward Amy’s appellate attorney-fee obligation.
