Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 10, 2024

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Bethany Currie, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Schumacher, P.J., and Ahlers and Langholz, JJ.  Opinion by Langholz, J.  (6 pages)

            Wayne Jennings appeals from an order granting Christina Jennings’s petition to modify the physical-care provisions of their dissolution decree and changing the placement of one of their children from joint physical care to Christina’s physical care.  He argues that the district court improperly limited the evidence he could present.  OPINION HOLDS: Because error is not preserved on Wayne’s evidentiary challenge and he raises no other issue, we affirm the district court.  And given the financial circumstances of the parties and the relative merits of the appeal, we award Christina Jennings appellate attorney fees.
