In the Matter of T.D.R.

NO. 09–15–00477–CV

Decided: February 25, 2016

Before McKeithen, C.J., Horton and Johnson, JJ.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Appellant, T.D.R., filed a notice of appeal of the trial court's November 9, 2015 judgment.  On January 14, 2016, we notified the parties that the appeal would be dismissed unless the appellant remitted the filing fee for the appeal.  Subsequently, the trial court clerk notified this Court that Appellant is not entitled to appeal without paying fees and neither paid for nor made arrangements to pay for preparation of the record.  On February 4, 2016, we notified the parties that the appeal would be dismissed for failure to make payment arrangements for the record.  Appellant did not respond to this Court's notices.

Appellant did not file an affidavit of indigence on appeal and has not shown that he is entitled to proceed without payment of costs.  See Tex.R.App. P. 20.1.  Although he was given an opportunity to cure before dismissal, Appellant failed to make payment arrangements for the preparation of the record.  See Tex.R.App. P. 37.3(b).  Furthermore, Appellant has not responded to notices requiring a response within a specified time.  See Tex.R.App. P. 42.3(c).  We dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution.  See Tex.R.App. P. 42.3(b).

APPEAL DISMISSED.
