Trial Court Judge: Judge Justin C. Angel
This post-divorce appeal concerns the wife s request for attorney fees based upon the husband s failure to comply with the requirements of the marital dissolution agreement. The trial court denied the request, finding that attorney fees were not warranted when the husband had not acted in contempt of the court s orders. The wife appeals the court s denial of attorney fees and also requests attorney fees on appeal. We reverse and also award attorney fees on appeal pursuant to the marital dissolution agreement.
