Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Floyd County, Rustin T. Davenport, Judge. AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED. Heard by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ. Opinion by Doyle, P.J. (7 pages)
Carole Browman, formerly known as Carole Melrose, appeals from the spousal support provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Mark Melrose. OPINION HOLDS: Ultimately, we find the court’s determination of Mark’s annual income to be with the range of evidence. Nevertheless, having considered all of the relevant factors, we conclude upon our de novo review of the record that Carole’s alimony award should be increased to $3000 per month. We decline each party’s request for appellate attorney fees in this appeal.
