            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Marlita A. Greve, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., Vaitheswaran, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, C.J.  (6 pages)

            Jyothsna Madhamanchi appeals from the child custody, spousal support, and attorney fee provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Madhu Dandamudi.  She asserts the district court should have placed their child in her physical care or it should have ordered additional visitation, communication, and transportation for the child.  She also requests increased spousal support, trial attorney fees, and appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: Placing weight on the district court’s findings of credibility, we affirm the decree and decline to award appellate attorney fees.
