Appellant's Statement of the Issues:|
I. Can spousal support be reduced, where a payor retires before age 65, if the retirement provides the payee spouse with substantially more monthly income than she had before the retirement?
II.Are payments received from a retirement account considered income?
III.When the totality of the circumstances involved in donald's motion to reduce spousal support are considered, should donald be allowed a reduction in his $750 per month spousal support?
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
1. What analysis should the Court apply in determining whether a voluntary early retirement constitutes a material change of circumstances to justify a reduction in spousal support?
2. Did the trial court clearly err in determining there was not a change in circumstances?
3. Did the trial court properly deny redistribution of Otter Tail retirement benefits without a showing under Rule 60(b), N.D.R.Civ.P.?
