MEMORANDUM OPINION


STEVE McKEITHEN, Chief Justice.

Lon Clarke Ruckel appealed an order denying his motion to clarify a qualified domestic relations order and ordering him to pay attorney's fees to the opposing party, Deborah Deniese Ruckel Yates. The appeal was submitted without briefs because the appellant failed to file his brief by September 20, 2006, the due date on the final extension granted for filing a brief. See Tex. R. App. P. 38.6(a), (d). On January 11, 2007, we notified the parties that the appeal would be advanced without oral argument. See Tex. R. App. P. 39.9. In the absence of a brief assigning error, we dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution. See Tex. R. App. P. 38.8(a)(1).

APPEAL DISMISSED.
