This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
Decided on June 10, 2011
PRESENT: SMITH, J.P., FAHEY, CARNI, LINDLEY, AND GORSKI, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the order so appealed from is unanimously affirmed without costs.
Memorandum: Petitioner-respondent father appeals from an order that, inter alia, denied his petition seeking to modify a prior order of custody and visitation by awarding him sole custody of the parties' children. We affirm. Contrary to the father's contention, the continuation of the joint custody arrangement is in the best interests of the children (see generally Eschbach v Eschbach, 56 NY2d 167, 171, 173-174).
