WILLIAM F. MASTRO, J.P., PETER B. SKELOS, RUTH C. BALKIN, ARIEL E. BELEN, JJ.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
We have reviewed the record and agree with the appellant's assigned counsel that there are no non-frivolous issues which could be raised on appeal (see e.g. Matter of Bodouva v Bodouva, 53 AD3d 483; Matter of Burke v Burke, 45 AD3d 591, 592; Matter of Hodges v Hodges, 40 AD3d 639; Matter of Lane v Lane, 8 AD3d 486). Counsel's application for leave to withdraw as counsel is therefore granted (see Matter of Ingle v Ingle, 19 AD3d 420; Matter of Mejias v Aleman, 10 AD3d 421; see also Anders v California, 386 US 738).
MASTRO, J.P., SKELOS, BALKIN and BELEN, JJ., concur.
