Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jan 21, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Joseph Seidlin, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (7 pages)

            Mun Koak appeals the physical care and spousal support provisions of the decree dissolving his marriage to Nyedow Koak.  He argues the district court erred in failing to order joint physical care of the parties’ children and in ordering him to pay spousal support.  OPINION HOLDS: On our de novo review of the record we find the district court did not err in awarding physical care of the parties’ children to Nyedow.  Finding no evidence to support Mun’s claim the court failed to consider pre-existing child support payments, we do not disturb the district court’s spousal support award.
