Appeal from the District Court of Walsh County, Northeast Judicial District, the Honorable M. Richard Geiger, Judge.

[¶1] Trina Heidt appealed from an amended divorce judgment, challenging the district court's failure to award her permanent spousal support. Trina Heidt claimed the district court's findings of fact under the Ruff-Fischer guidelines were clearly erroneous and lacked specificity. See generally Fischer v. Fischer, 139 N.W.2d 845, 852 (N.D. 1966); Ruff v. Ruff, 78 N.D. 775, 784, 52 N.W.2d 107, 111 (1952) (establishing relevant factors to be considered in determining spousal support awards). The district court's amended divorce judgment is based on findings of fact that adequately addressed the Ruff-Fischer guidelines and are not clearly erroneous. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
