Court of Appeals
Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Jeanie K. Vaudt, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Mullins, P.J., Bower, J., and Vogel, S.J. Opinion by Bower, J. (8 pages)
Jonathan Parlee appeals the economic and spousal support provisions of the decree dissolving his marriage to Pamela Parlee. Jon asserts the district court miscalculated the parties’ income, resulting in an inequitable spousal support award. He also objects to the court’s valuations of property items, the property distribution, and the award of trial attorney fees. Finally, he requests an award of appellate attorney fees. OPINION HOLDS: The court carefully considered the parties’ positions and correctly applied the law. On our de novo review, we find no failure to do equity and therefore affirm. We deny his request for appellate attorney fees.
