            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Allamakee County, John J. Bauercamper, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED ON APPEAL; AFFIRMED on CROSS-APPEAL.  Heard by Potterfield, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (13 pages)

            Roxanne Johanningmeier appeals, and Travis Johanningmeier cross-appeals, the district court order denying both parties’ petitions to modify a dissolution-of-marriage decree.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the court’s denial of Travis’s petition to modify the physical-care provisions of the dissolution decree as he failed to prove that a material change in circumstances occurred since the dissolution decree.  We reverse the court’s denial of Roxanne’s petition to modify the child-support provisions of the decree and remand for a calculation of child support and medical support based on the district court’s findings of Roxanne’s annual income of $37,000.00 and Travis’s monthly income of $25,000.00 under the current guidelines.  The modified support orders shall be retroactive to February 2018.  We award Roxanne $5000.00 in appellate attorney fees.
