Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Butler County, Christopher C. Foy, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED AND REMANDED ON APPEAL; AFFIRMED ON CROSS-APPEAL.  Considered by Ahlers, P.J., and Badding and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, P.J.  (8 pages)

            A father appeals the district court’s child-support calculations.  The mother cross-appeals the district court’s denial of her request to modify visitation.  OPINION HOLDS: The mother is underemployed, so we conclude additional income should be imputed to her for the purposes of calculating child support.  The mother has failed to show a change in circumstances warranting modification of her visitation with the parents’ child.
