SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
April 14, 1969
IN THE MATTER OF PATRICIA BARRY, RESPONDENT,
ALLAN BARRY, APPELLANT
Appeal from an order of the Family Court, Orange County, dated October 8, 1968, which directed appellant to pay $50 per week for the support of the parties' child.
Rabin, Acting P. J., Benjamin, Munder, Martuscello and Kleinfeld, JJ., concur.
Appellant is directed to continue paying $40 per week, on account of the child's support, in the interim, consistent with one of the conditions in the order of Mr. Justice A. David Benjamin, of this court, dated November 18, 1968. The record is deficient of any proof indicating the child's needs. The party petitioning for support of a minor should, in the first instance, offer proof of the child's requirements (Matter of Silvestris v. Silvestris, 24 A.D.2d 247, 250). Furthermore, the summary fashion in which appellant's visitation rights were denied requires us to direct reconsideration of that aspect of the proceeding by the Family Court.
Order reversed, on the law and on the facts, without costs, and proceeding remanded to the court below for a further hearing at which proof shall be adduced consistent herewith.
