Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Fayette County, Richard D. Stochl, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ. Opinion by Doyle, J. (9 pages)
Victoria Dugan appeals the child custody and support provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to James Dugan. OPINION HOLDS: I. The record supports the finding that granting James physical care of the parties’ six children serves the children’s best interests. We also affirm the visitation provisions of the dissolution decree. II. Because it is necessary to impute income to Victoria to do justice between the parties, we affirm district court’s child support calculation. III. We decline to award Victoria spousal support on the record before us. IV. We decline to award Victoria appellate attorney fees.
