Date Published:
Jun 03, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Michael D. Huppert, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (6 pages)

            The wife filed an application seeking to set aside the parties’ decree of dissolution of marriage on the basis that it was procured by extrinsic fraud.  The district court denied her application to set aside the decree, finding she failed to prove the existence of extrinsic fraud.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court’s findings are supported by substantial evidence.  We agree with the district court that the wife failed to meet the burden of proving extrinsic fraud by clear and convincing evidence.
