Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Steven J. Oeth, Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, REVERSED IN PART, AND REMANDED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (13 pages)

            Divinity De Los Rios, formerly known as Divinity Roberts, appeals the district court’s decision denying her application for modification of the parties’ dissolution decree.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the district court properly denied Divinity’s request for sole legal custody, and we affirm on this issue.  We reverse the district court’s decision requiring Divinity to reveal her physical address based on her participation in an address-confidentiality program.  The matter is remanded to the district court for consideration of the applicable law and for additional factual findings concerning the address disclosure provision.  Accordingly, we affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand to the district court.
