Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Hardin County, James A. McGlynn, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ. Opinion by Potterfield, P.J. (7 pages)
Steven Lyon appeals from the district court’s modification of his and Lori Lyon’s previously modified dissolution decree. He asks us to affirm the district court’s change of the holiday schedule but otherwise argues the court should have changed the parenting-time schedule to give him even more time with the parties’ child, C.L. In response, Lori asks that we affirm the district court’s modification and award her $2500 in appellate attorney fees. OPINION HOLDS: For the reasons stated herein, we affirm the district court’s ruling on Steven’s petition for modification and decline Lori’s request for appellate attorney fees.
