In The Court of Appeals

Robert Widdicombe,        Respondent,

v.

Rachel P. Dupree,        Appellant.


Appeal From Charleston County
Paul W. Garfinkel, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-490
Submitted August 1, 2005 – Filed August 17, 2005 


AFFIRMED


Rachel P. Tucker-Cales, of Mt. Pleasant, for Appellant.

Paul B. Ferrara, III, of Summerville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Rachel P. Tucker-Cales Dupree disputes a family court order finding her in contempt for failing to pay child support.  We affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b)(2), SCACR, and the following authorities:  Haselden v. Haselden, 347 S.C. 48, 63, 552 S.E.2d 329, 337 (Ct. App. 2001) (defining contempt); Smith-Cooper v. Cooper, 344 S.C. 289, 300, 543 S.E.2d 271, 277 (Ct. App. 2001) (defining willful conduct); and Henderson v. Henderson, 298 S.C. 190, 197, 379 S.E.2d 125, 129 (1989) (holding that a finding of contempt is within the sound discretion of the family court judge).  We find the issue of subject matter jurisdiction not properly before this court because it is the subject of another appeal currently pending before this court.  

AFFIRMED.[1]

ANDERSON, HUFF, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.   


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
