Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Scott D. Rosenberg, Judge. AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED. Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ. Opinion by Greer, J. (14 pages)
After the district court awarded Suheir Khalil spousal support, a property equalization payment, and attorney fees in this dissolution action, her husband, Sabet Teia, appealed asserting the awards were inequitable. OPINION HOLDS: We find the spousal support award should be reduced to $500 per month for a period of five years but affirm the district court order in all other respects. We award Suheir appellate attorney fees.
