In the Interest of G.T., a Child

NO. 02–14–00284–CV

Decided: January 15, 2015



On October 17, 2014, October 21, 2014, November 12, 2014, November 14, 2014, and December 09, 2014, we notified appellant in accordance with rule of appellate procedure 42.3(c) that we would dismiss this appeal unless the $195 filing fee was paid.   See Tex.R.App. P. 42.3(c).  Appellant has not paid the $195 filing fee.   See Tex.R.App. P. 5, 12.1(b).

Appellant filed an affidavit of inability to pay costs in the trial court on January 10, 2013.   On November 14, 2014, we notified appellant that his January 10, 2013 affidavit does not satisfy the requirements of an affidavit of indigence for an appeal from the trial court's ruling and that the rules of appellate procedure require that he file a new affidavit of indigence complying with rule of appellate procedure 20.1 in the trial court.   See Tex.R.App. P. 20.1.   Appellant has not filed a new affidavit of indigence.

Because appellant failed to comply with a requirement of the rules of appellate procedure and the Texas Supreme Court's order of August 16, 2013,2 we dismiss the appeal.   See Tex.R.App. P. 42.3(c), 43.2(f).

Appellant shall pay all costs of this appeal, for which let execution issue.   See Tex.R.App. P. 43.4.
