Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Poweshiek County, Lucy G. Gamon, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Greer, P.J., Badding, J., and Gamble, S.J. Opinion by Gamble, S.J. (7 pages)
Kelly Scott, formerly Kelly McClenathan, appeals the district court decision denying her application for modification of the child custody provisions of the parties’ dissolution decree. OPINION HOLDS: Kelly has not shown a material change in circumstances outside of the court’s contemplation at the time of the dissolution decree nor the ability to provide superior care for the children at issue. So we affirm the district court. We also deny Kelly’s request for appellate attorney fees.
