Date Published:
Jan 12, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mills County, Michael Hooper, Judge.  AFFIRMED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (11 pages).

            Robert Edgerton appeals a ruling modifying the joint physical care provision of the stipulated decree dissolving his marriage, challenging the standard employed by the district court.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the district court applied the correct standard and considered appropriate factors in deciding which parent should have physical care.  After doing the same on our de novo review of the record, we affirm the modification ruling placing the children in the mother’s physical care.  We remand for the district court to determine a reasonable amount of attorney fees to be awarded to Jessica Edgerton.
