This is an appeal from a final order in a suit to modify the parent-child relationship. The appellant complains, inter alia, that the trial court misapplied the law in awarding a six-percent rate of interest on the attorneys' fees award, but offers no authority for his argument that the trial court's failure to award the legally correct interest rate constitutes an issue of legal sufficiency or excessive damages. Further, a complaint that the trial court misapplied the law must be raised in the trial court. The trial court's judgment is affirmed, but modified to clarify that the interest on appellate attorneys' fees does not begin until the appellate court's judgment is final. Houston's 14th Court of Appeals, No. 14-11-00637-CV, 01-24-2013.
