IN THE INTEREST OF N.P., A CHILD


From the 166th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, Texas
Trial Court No. 2017PA00010
Honorable Solomon Casseb III, Judge Presiding

ORDER

On July 11, 2018, appellant filed a "Notice of Appeal." The clerk's record was filed on July 19, 2018. Although the clerk's record contains the judge's notes, the clerk's record does not contain an order terminating appellant's parental rights. See In re L.H., No. 04-13-00174-CV, 2013 WL 3804585, at *1 (Tex. App.—San Antonio July 17, 2013, no pet.) (noting judge's notes do not constitute a final order) (mem. op). In response to this court's inquiry, the trial court clerk confirmed the trial court has not signed a final order. "[A]n appeal may be prosecuted only from a final judgment." N.E. Indep. Sch. Dist. v. Aldridge, 400 S.W.2d 893, 895 (Tex. 1966). Because no final order has been entered in the underlying case, appellant is ORDERED to show cause in writing on or before August 31, 2018 why this appeal should not be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.
