Decided on December 20, 2012
Tom, J.P., Sweeny, DeGrasse, Manzanet-Daniels, Clark, JJ.
Order, Supreme Court, Bronx County (La Tia W. Martin, J.), entered June 25, 2012, which, inter alia, granted plaintiff's motion to increase interim child support from $2,000 to $3,000 per month, and denied defendant's cross motion to suspend interim child support payments and direct plaintiff to reimburse him for all child support payments related to a former nanny, unanimously affirmed, without costs.
We do not perceive any "exigent circumstances" warranting disturbance of the modified interim award (see Anonymous v Anonymous, 63 AD3d 493, 496-497 [1st Dept 2009], appeal dismissed 14 NY3d 921 ). The motion court properly directed the parties to supplement their motion papers with updated financial statements (see CPLR 2214[c]). In any event, however, the motion court did not base the upward modification in interim child support on the parties' updated financial information; it based the modification on the "substantial change in circumstances" represented by the reduction in defendant's interim visitation schedule from two to three days per week to one two-hour supervised visit per week (see Domestic Relations Law § 236[B][b][i]).
We have considered defendant's remaining arguments and find them unavailing.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
