            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Sioux County, Zachary Hindman, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (12 pages)

            Ubaldo Del Real appeals from the decree dissolving his marriage to Gregoria Del Real, contending (1) the court failed to “imput[e] minimum wage to Gregoria for child support purposes” and (2) acted inequitably by not giving him “a greater portion of the marital equity.”  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm all provisions of the dissolution decree except the provisions approving the parents’ stipulation concerning custody of the youngest child and ordering custody of the youngest child to be placed with Gregoria, because we conclude the district court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to make a child custody determination involving the youngest child.  We therefore affirm as modified.
