Date Published:
Jul 01, 2020
Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Kathleen A. Kilnoski, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (10 pages)

            Jami Mason appeals a modification ruling by the district court.  In the modification ruling, the district court directed Michael Kelly and Jami Mason to share the physical care of their two children.  The court also declined to hold Michael in contempt of the divorce decree.  OPINION HOLDS: We find Michael showed a substantial change in circumstances to justify modification.  And Jami did not prove that Michael willfully violated the decree.  We thus affirm the district court’s order.
