This is an appeal from a final decree of divorce signed March 2, 2005. No clerk=s record has been filed. The clerk responsible for preparing the record in this appeal informed the court appellant did not establish indigence or make arrangements to pay for the record. On July 11, 2005, notification was transmitted to all parties of the court=s intention to dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution unless, within fifteen days, appellant paid or made arrangements to pay for the record and provided this court with proof of payment. See Tex. R. App. P. 37.3(b). Appellant filed no response.
In addition, to date, appellant has not paid the $125.00 appellate filing fee. See Tex. R. App. P. 5 (requiring payment of fees in civil cases unless indigent);Tex. R. App. P. 20.1 (listing requirements for establishing indigence); see also Order Regarding Fees Charged in Civil Cases in the Supreme Court and the Courts of Appeals, Misc. Docket No. 98-9120 (Tex. Jul. 21, 1998) (listing fees in court of appeals); Tex. Gov=t Code Ann. ' 51.207 (Vernon Supp.2004-05) (same). After being notified that this appeal was subject to dismissal, appellant did not respond.
