Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Sep 11, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mills County, Timothy O'Grady, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (4 pages)

            Steve Palmer appeals from a decree dissolving his marriage to Debra Palmer.  He claims the district court did not award him enough spousal support.  OPINION HOLDS: We afford the district court considerable latitude in determining spousal support.  Here, the district court’s award fits well with Steve and Debra’s relative needs and resources.  The district court did not fail to do equity.  We affirm.  And we assess costs of this appeal to Steve.
