Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 23, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Christopher L. Bruns, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (12 pages)

            Chelsea Reed appeals an order establishing child custody and support of a three-year-old daughter.  OPINION HOLDS: After considering all the relevant factors, we affirm the order placing physical care of the child with her father.  On child support, we find the district court’s calculation was supported by the evidence and decline to disturb its ruling ordering Chelsea to pay $559 in monthly child support.
