Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clinton County, Marlita A. Greve, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (8 pages)

            A father appeals from the dismissal of his petition to modify an order’s custodial provisions.  OPINION HOLDS: The changes in circumstances since the order entered in 2017 fall short of the heavy burden necessary for a modification of custody.  We therefore affirm the dismissal of the father’s petition to modify the custodial order.  We decline to award appellate attorney fees to the mother and assess costs on appeal to the father.
