            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Sean McPartland, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (12 pages)

            The mother appeals the district court decision granting physical care of her child to the father and ordering her to pay child support.  In the alternative, she argues for increased visitation time.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court properly awarded the father physical care of the child.  The record does not support an increase in the mother’s visitation time.  Both issues are affirmed.  The award of child support is reversed and the matter is remanded to the district court to make findings regarding the parties’ incomes and an appropriate child support award.
