Court of Appeals of Texas, Waco.

In the Interest of D.D.,

NO. 02–11–00369–CV

Decided: November 14, 2011

COURT OF APPEALS

SECOND DISTRICT OF TEXAS

FORT WORTH

A Child

MEMORANDUM OPINION1

Appellant Mother attempts to appeal from a July 23, 2007 final order in a suit affecting the parent-child relationship.   The notice of appeal was due August 13, 2007, but was not filed until September 23, 2011.

On October 4, 2011, we notified Mother of our concern that we lack jurisdiction over this appeal because the notice of appeal was not timely filed.   We informed Mother that this appeal may be dismissed for want of jurisdiction unless she or any party desiring to continue the appeal filed with the court on or before October 14, 2011, a response showing grounds for continuing the appeal.   Mother did not file a response.

Mother's untimely notice of appeal fails to vest jurisdiction in this court.   See Tex.R.App. P. 25.1;  Verburgt v. Dorner, 959 S.W.2d 615, 616–17 (Tex.1997).   Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal for want of jurisdiction.   See Tex.R.App. P. 43.2(f).

PANEL:  WALKER, MCCOY, and MEIER, JJ.

DELIVERED:  November 10, 2011
