While the decision of the Family Court was pending, and immediately after said decision was rendered, events took place which call into question whether the father has engaged in conduct detrimental to the well-being of the child, and thus, whether it is in the best interests of the child for custody to be changed to the father. Accordingly, this matter is remanded to Family Court for further proceedings as to these issues.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
