Court of Appeals Opinion

Date Published:
Apr 13, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Guthrie County, Richard B. Clogg, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED AND REMANDED.  Considered by May, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by May, P.J.  (8 pages)

            Gus Cabrera appeals from a decree establishing custody, physical care, and visitation of his child with Stephanie Linxwiler.  He challenges legal custody, physical care, the holiday care schedule, and child support.  OPINION HOLDS: We clarify the decree to provide the parents with joint legal custody.  This family is not a candidate for joint physical care.  We provide a more specific holiday schedule.  And we agree with Gus that the district court did not use the correct income for Stephanie when calculating child support.  So we remand to the district court recalculate child support.
