DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The Supreme Court providently exercised its discretion in denying the plaintiff former husband's motion to vacate the money judgment which had been entered upon his default (see CPLR 5015[a]; Spinardi v Spinardi, 36 AD3d 683; McClaren v Bell Atl., 30 AD3d 569; Kurtz v Mitchell, 27 AD3d 697; Binna Han v Chungwon Bark, 25 AD3d 586; Roussodimou v Zafiriadis, 238 AD2d 568, 568-569).
The plaintiff's remaining contention is without merit.
SPOLZINO, J.P., SANTUCCI, FLORIO and LOTT, JJ., concur.
