BENHAM, Judge.
Child support. Dade Superior Court. Before Judge Andrews.
Appellant brought an action seeking custody of her son who was then in the custody of his father pursuant to a divorce decree. The trial judge granted the change of custody, but appellant was dissatisfied with the trial court's award of child support, so she filed a notice of appeal in the trial court. Appellant did not, however, file an application with this court for a discretionary appeal. See OCGA 5-6-35 (a) (2). "This court has held that appeals from orders dealing with child custody which are not filed pursuant to OCGA 5-6-35 . . . must be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. [Cit.]" Jones v. Warrenfells, 166 Ga. App. 519 (305 SE2d 147) (1983).
Roger B. Auman, Jr., for appellee.
