Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jackson County, John D. Telleen, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ. Opinion by May, J. (6 pages)
Brandy Hansen appeals from the decree dissolving her marriage to James Hansen. She argues the district court erred in granting James physical care of two children and child support. OPINION HOLDS: Based on our de novo review of the record while giving deference to the district court’s findings, we conclude the court correctly awarded physical care of the two children to James. We also conclude the court correctly awarded child support. We decline to award either party appellate attorney fees.
