Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jun 17, 2020

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Humboldt County, Kurt L. Wilke, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (8 pages)

            Susan Reed sought to modify the custody provisions of the dissolution decree awarding shared care.  Susan requested the court order she have physical care of her and Andrew Reed’s younger child and modify the child support award accordingly.  While the district court adjusted Andrew’s child support obligation, which he does not appeal, it disagreed with Susan’s custody request.  The court declined to award Susan attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court order on Susan’s modification petition.  We decline to award Susan trial attorney fees and we deny both parties’ requests for appellate attorney fees.  We assess the costs of this appeal to Susan.
