Date Published:
Sep 26, 2018
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pocahontas County, Kurt L. Wilke, Judge.  AFfirmed.  Heard by Vogel, P.J., Tabor, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, P.J. (9 pages)

            Amanda Reese asked the court to modify the physical-care and child-support provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Brian Olson.  Amanda’s petition alleged a substantial change in circumstances regarding the care and well-being of the children and a failure to communicate as changes since the entry of the decree.  OPINIONS HOLDS: Because we conclude Amanda failed to show a substantial change in circumstances since the original decree, we affirm the district court’s denial of the petition to modify physical care and child support.  We also affirm the district court’s failure to award Amanda attorney fees and decline to award her appellate attorney fees.
