Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Timothy J. Finn and Steven J. Oeth, Judges. AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED. Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ. Opinion by Tabor, P.J. (9 pages)
A former wife appeals the dissolution decree refusing to divide a substantial inheritance of the former husband and challenges the spousal support award. OPINION HOLDS: The district court properly refused to divide the former husband’s inheritance, and achieved equity in the spousal support award. We affirm all aspects of the decree except for a minor calculation error pointed out by the former husband. We modify the decree only to correct this aspect of the equalization payment.
