AFFIRMED


Franklin C. Reaves, pro se Appellant.

Willie D. Reaves, pro se Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Franklin Reeves appeals from the family court’s order finding him in contempt for his willful violation of the court’s prior order to pay alimony to Willie Reaves.  We affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authorities: S.C Code Ann. § 63-3-620 (Supp. 2008) (“An adult who willfully violates, neglects, or refuses to obey or perform a lawful order of the court . . . may be proceeded against for contempt of court.”); Frye v. Frye, 323 S.C. 72, 75-76, 448 S.E.2d 586, 588 (Ct. App. 1994) (citing Jordan v. Harrison, 303 S.C. 522, 402 S.E.2d 188 (Ct. App. 1991)) (“[W]here one held in contempt for violation of a court order complies with the order, his compliance renders the issue of contempt moot and precludes appellate review of the contempt proceeding.”).

AFFIRMED. [1]

Huff, Williams, and Konduros, JJ., concur.


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