Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Alan Heavens, Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ. Opinion by Badding, J. (11 pages)
Sara McCusker appeals the physical care provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Adam McCusker. Sara argues the court erred in denying her request for joint physical care of the parties’ two children and instead awarding Adam physical care. In the alternative, she asserts the children should have been placed in her physical care. Adam requests an award of appellate attorney fees. OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s physical care decision and deny Adam’s request for appellate attorney fees. Costs on appeal are taxed to Sara.
