Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Feb 17, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Mark D. Cleve, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (4 pages)

            Gina Fox appeals the order modifying the child custody and support provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Jeremy Fox.  OPINION HOLDS: Gina admits the parties are unable to co-parent, which establishes a substantial change in circumstances.  Because the evidence shows Jeremy is more mature, stable, and better positioned to act in the child’s best interests as her physical caretaker, we affirm the order modifying the decree to place the child in Jeremy’s physical care.
