Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 17, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clay County, David A. Lester, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., Mullins, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (5 pages)

            Jesse Blair appeals the order establishing paternity, custody, and visitation of the child he shares with Trish Scott, now known as Trish Weimar.  OPINION HOLDS: Although the evidence could support granting physical care to either parent, we concur with the district court’s assessment that Trish should be granted physical care based on her historical role as the child’s caretaker and because doing so will allow the child to grow up with her half-sister.
