This is an appeal from an Order entered January 13, 1987, in the Court of Common Pleas of Dauphin County, denying appellee-wife's request for an increase in support and granting appellant-husband's request for a decrease in support.
The history of this case as set forth in the trial court's opinion is as follows:
On November 25, 1986, the Court modified a previous Support Order dated December 18, 1984 and ordered the Defendant (Andrew H. Kraft, Jr., husband) to pay the sum of $175.00 per week plus $10.00 per week arrearages for the support of his wife and two children. Defendant was given credit for $305.00 towards the arrears. This modified order was an increase from the previous Support Order entered by the Court on December 18, 1984 which ordered Defendant to pay $110.00 per week.
On December 8, 1986, Defendant appealed the entry of the November 25, 1986 Order and requested a hearing before this Court to reduce the Order. On December 15, 1986 Plaintiff (Carol J. Kraft, wife) also appealed the Order and requested a hearing before this Court to increase the November 25, 1986 Order.
A hearing was held before this Court on January 13, 1987 . . .
At the conclusion of the hearing, this Court reduced the award to $160.00 a week plus 10.00 on arrears.
