Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Washington County, Joel D. Yates, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ. Opinion by Vogel, J. (4 pages)
Joseph Tarrence appeals from the decree dissolving his marriage to Shelby Tarrence. He asks us to award physical care of their children to him or award joint physical care and to make a corresponding change in his child support obligation. Both parties request appellate attorney fees. OPINION HOLDS: We find the district court’s factual determinations are supported by the record and affirm the physical care award and child support calculation. We also find Shelby is entitled to partial appellate attorney fees.
