DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
Contrary to the plaintiff's contention, the Supreme Court properly credited the defendant's child support account for the entire amount that he paid for certain mortgage-related expenses pertaining to the marital residence, pursuant to a pendente lite support order dated August 16, 2006, because the payment of the mortgage in addition to child support would have resulted in giving the plaintiff a double shelter allowance (see Lauria v Lauria, 45 AD3d 535; Graham v Graham, 277 AD2d 423, 424; Krantz v Krantz, 175 AD2d 865, 866).
The plaintiff's remaining contentions are without merit.
FISHER, J.P., MILLER, CARNI and BALKIN, JJ., concur.
