Court of Appeals of Texas, Amarillo.

IN THE INTEREST OF L.C.R., L.R.R., AND L.M.R., CHILDREN

No. 07-17-00234-CV

Decided: July 27, 2017

Before QUINN, C.J., and CAMPBELL and PIRTLE, JJ.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Appellant Michael Aaron Reyna filed a notice of appeal from a child support review order, but did not pay the filing fee or file a statement of inability to afford payment of court costs. See TEX. R. APP. P. 5, 20.1(c). By letter of July 6, 2017, we notified Mr. Reyna that the filing fee had not been paid, and further notified him that the appeal would be subject to dismissal if he failed to pay the fee, or comply with Appellate Rule 20.1, by July 17. See TEX. R. APP. P. 20.1, 42.3(c).

Mr. Reyna has not paid the filing fee or filed any response to our July 6 letter. The rules that govern this Court's handling of appeals in civil cases require that a party who is not excused by law from paying costs must pay the required fees. See TEX. R. APP. P. 5. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed because of Mr. Reyna's failure to comply with a requirement of the Rules of Appellate Procedure. See TEX. R. APP. P. 42.3(c).
