Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 27, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Michael D. Huppert, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Potterfield, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (14 pages)

            Anthony Collins Jr. (Tony) appeals the district court’s denial of his petition to modify the parties’ paternity decree to order physical care of the parties’ child with him rather than the child’s mother, Veronica Landals.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our review, we affirm the order entered by the court, but we conclude equity requires that Veronica pay for the child’s travel costs necessary to facilitate visitation with Tony, and we modify the order in that regard.
