Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-590
Submitted December 1, 2009 – Filed December 14, 2009   


AFFIRMED


Percival Dimen Teruel, pro se, of Myrtle Beach, for Appellant.

Deborah Harrison Sheffield, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: In this domestic action, Percival Dimen Teruel (Husband) appeals the family court's final decree of divorce.  According to Teruel, the family court erred in: (1) denying his motion for a continuance; (2) finding Elaine Teruel (Wife) did not disclose an individual banking account; (3) awarding Wife custody of their minor children; (4) ordering him to pay child support arrearages; (5) determining the amount of child support; (6) finding the marital home was not subject to distribution; (7) finding Wife's interest in the Teruel-Arakas Family, LLC was not subject to distribution; (8) finding Wife's interest in the National House of Pancakes was not subject to distribution; (9) denying Husband's request for alimony; (10) not ruling on whether Wife's stocks and bonds were subject to equitable distribution; and (11) concluding Wife was entitled to a divorce on the ground of one year of continuous separation.  Additionally, Husband asserts there are discrepancies in the trial transcript. We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authority: In re Care and Treatment of McCracken, 346 S.C. 87, 93, 551 S.E.2d 235, 239 (2001) ("A bald assertion, without supporting argument, does not preserve an issue for appeal.").

AFFIRMED.

HUFF, J., GEATHERS, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


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