Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, David F. Staudt, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Bower, C.J., Schumacher, J., and Scott, S.J. Opinion by Scott, S.J. (8 pages)
A father appeals the adjudication of his two children as children in need of assistance (CINA). He also challenges the denial of his request for visitation. OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the CINA adjudications and the court’s denial of the father’s initial motion for visitation. We find no error in the court’s decision to reconsider the issue of visitation at a subsequent review hearing.
