Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, John G. Linn, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Heard by Vogel, P.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Vogel, P.J.  (15 pages)

            Ashley Holtkamp appeals from the decree dissolving her marriage to Nathan Holtkamp.  She argues the trial court erred in finding their prenuptial agreement enforceable and in establishing Nathan’s visitation schedule with the parties’ minor children.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Ashley failed to prove the prenuptial agreement was executed involuntarily, was procedurally unconscionable, or lacked a financial disclosure, we agree with the district court that the prenuptial agreement is enforceable.  Additionally, we modify the visitation schedule on Tuesday nights and weekends and otherwise agree the visitation schedule is in the best interests of the children.
