DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order of disposition is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The Family Court has broad discretion in determining the appropriate disposition, and great deference is given to its determination (see Matter of Karen M., 58 AD3d 734; Matter of Javed K., 57 AD3d 899; Matter of Ashley D., 55 AD3d 605). The disposition here was not inappropriate.
Under the circumstances of this case, the appellant was not entitled to an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal (see Matter of Javed K., 57 AD3d 899; Matter of Ashley H., 53 AD3d 578; Matter of Melissa B., 49 AD3d 536; Matter of Oneil D., 35 AD3d 602; Matter of Yasin H., 31 AD3d 638).
DILLON, J.P., BALKIN, BELEN and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
