PER CURIAM: Appellant, Horace Reynolds, Jr., appeals from an order of the family court finding a non-lawyer prepared the legal documents in this matter, thus constituting the illegal practice of law . Reynolds bases his appeal on the family court judge’s dismissal of his action. On remand from this court, the family court clarified that it merely continued the hearing and did not dismiss the action. “It is well settled that an order granting a continuance is an interlocutory order not involving the merits and is, thus, not directly appealable. Walker v. Springs Indus., Inc., 298 S.C. 249, 251, 379 S.E.2d 729, 730 (Ct. App. 1989); Temples v. Ramsey, 285 S.C. 600, 602, 330 S.E.2d 558, 559 (Ct. App. 1985).
We therefore dismiss this appeal from an interlocutory order.
HUFF, STILWELL, and BEATTY JJ., concur.
We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
