Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Butler County, Christopher C. Foy, Judge.  AFFIRMED AND REMANDED WITH INSTRUCTION.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Greer, P.J.  (20 pages)

            Jesse Cickavage challenges a district court’s decision to grant the mother of his children, Sara, a permanent injunction, grant her petition to modify his visitation, and deny his request to modify physical care.  Jesse also raises a number of concerns about the consolidated trial where these issues were heard.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the injunction does not violate Jesse’s right to free speech, provides Sara relief, and is her only option for remedy, we affirm the district court’s grant of a permanent injunction.  Because Jesse did not prove there was a permanent change in circumstances, we affirm the district court’s denial of his request for modification of physical care.  Because Sara did meet her burden to show her out-of-state move was not previously contemplated by the court, we affirm the change of visitation.  Finally, we find no problem with the trial requiring us to undermine the district court’s decision.
