Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Terry R. Rickers, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ. Opinion by Tabor, J. (9 pages)
A father, Christopher Vesey, appeals the district court decision granting his former spouse Kelly's petition to modify their custody arrangement making her primary caregiver. OPINION HOLDS: Because we find Kelly demonstrated a material and substantial change in circumstance not contemplated by the district court at the time of the original decree, more or less permanent, in the best interest of the children, and she was better suited to continue taking care of the children's needs, we affirm the decision of the district court.
