IN RE: CHRISTOPHER P. FOWLER, PETITIONER–APPELLANT, v. VALERIE M. VANGEE, RESPONDENT–RESPONDENT.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
It is hereby ORDERED that the order so appealed from is unanimously affirmed without costs.
Memorandum: Petitioner father appeals from an order dismissing his petition seeking to modify a prior order of visitation. Contrary to the father's contention, we conclude that Family Court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing his petition without conducting a hearing. A hearing is not required whenever a parent seeks modification of a visitation order and, here, the father “failed to make a sufficient evidentiary showing of a change in circumstances to require a hearing” (Matter of Consilio v. Terrigino, 114 AD3d 1248, 1248 [internal quotation marks omitted] ).
