Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
May 12, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Jeffrey A. Neary, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (11 pages)

            Kayla Anderson appeals the custody and child support provisions of a modification decree.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Brian met his burden to prove that modification was in the child’s best interests and that he was best suited to care for the child’s well-being, we affirm the district court’s modification of physical care.  Kayla’s child-support arguments are not supported by the record.
