MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: January 7, 2010
Before: Cardona, P.J., Peters, Rose, Kavanagh and McCarthy, JJ.
Appeal from an order of the Family Court of Broome County (Charnetsky, J.), entered May 14, 2009, which, among other things, granted petitioner's application, in a proceeding pursuant to Family Ct Act article 10, to adjudicate the subject children to be neglected.
Petitioner commenced this neglect proceeding alleging, among other things, that respondent Michael UU. (hereinafter respondent) used and was under the influence of controlled substances while caring for the subject children (born in 1995 and 1997). Thereafter, with the assistance of counsel, respondent admitted to certain allegations contained in the petition, including that he was a person legally responsible for the children's care, and consented to both a finding that he neglected the children and Family Court's disposition. Respondent now appeals, arguing that he is not a person legally responsible for the children's care within the meaning of Family Court Act § 1012 (a) and (g).
Because no appeal lies from an order entered on consent, this appeal must be dismissed (see Matter of Michael CC., 216 AD2d 740, 740 ; see also Matter of Fantasia Y., 45 AD3d 1215, 1216 ). To the extent that respondent argues that his consent was not knowing, intelligent or voluntary, he failed to make an application in Family Court to vacate the order (see Family Ct Act § 1051 [f]; § 1061; Matter of Brittany T., 48 AD3d 995, 996 ).*fn1
Cardona, P.J., Rose, Kavanagh and McCarthy, JJ., concur.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed, without costs.
