Court of Appeals
Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Page County, Timothy O’Grady, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ. Opinion by Doyle, P.J. (5 pages)
Jessalyn Brockman appeals the child custody provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Matthew Brockman. OPINION HOLDS: Like the district court, we find that awarding Matthew physical care is in the child’s best interests. We affirm the custody provisions of the dissolution decree and the district court’s decision to deny an award of trial attorney fees. We decline to award Jessalyn her attorney fees on appeal.
