A. GAIL PRUDENTI, P.J., DAVID S. RITTER, FRED T. SANTUCCI & CHERYL E. CHAMBERS, JJ.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed, without costs or disbursements.
It is the obligation of the appellant to assemble a proper record on appeal (see Family Ct Act § 1118; CPLR 5525[a]; Matter of Zaikowski v Monzon, 277 AD2d 459). The failure to provide necessary transcripts inhibits the Court's ability to render an informed decision on the merits of the appeal (see Matter of Rudick v Rudick, 16 AD3d 514). In this proceeding, the father failed to provide a transcript of the hearing. This appeal must be dismissed as the papers provided were patently insufficient for the purpose of reviewing the issues he raised (see Matter of Rudick v Rudick, 16 AD3d 514; Sultan v Sultan, 295 AD2d 498, 499; Svoboda v Svoboda, 275 AD2d 742).
PRUDENTI, P.J., RITTER, SANTUCCI and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
