Brian Matthew Pierce, pro se
Court of Appeals
Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Lawrence P. McLellan, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ. Opinion by Mullins, J. (4 pages)
Suzanne Billeter appeals the district court’s denial of her petition to modify the decree dissolving her marriage to Brian Pierce. She argues the court erred in: (1) not finding a substantial and material change in circumstance to modify custody and physical care, (2) finding a substantial change in circumstance to modify child support, and (3) not granting a new trial. OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the court’s modification ruling and the denial of Suzanne’s request for a new trial.
