DISMISSED

PER CURIAM:  This is an appeal from an order of the family court increasing Appellant’s child support obligation.  We dismiss the appeal as moot.  Seabrook v. Knox, 369 S.C. 191, 631 S.E.2d 901 (2006) (case is moot where judgment rendered by the court will have no practical legal effect upon an existing controversy because an intervening event renders any grant of effectual relief impossible for the reviewing court).

APPEAL DISMISSED
