Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dickinson County, Carl J. Petersen, Judge. AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and May, JJ. Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J. Concurrence in part and dissent in part by May, J. (18 pages)
Steven Mann appeals several provisions of the decree dissolving his marriage to Andrea Mann. OPINION HOLDS: We conclude Steven should receive $2395 in spousal support per month for a period of three years, and we modify the decree in that regard. We affirm the district court’s property distribution. We decline Andrea’s request for appellate attorney fees. PARTIAL DISSENT ASSERTS: I do not conclude the district court's denial of spousal support constituted a failure to do equity. So I would not modify the decree. As to all other issues. I concur with the majority.
