Matter of Odunbaku v Odunbaku, Court of Appeals November 18, 2016

Court of Appeals reverses Second Department: Matter of Odunbaku v Odunbaku, http://www.nycourts.gov/reporter/3dseries/2016/2016_07705.htm

We apply our precedent in Matter of Bianca v Frank (43 NY2d 168 [1977]) to Family Court Act § 439 (e) and hold that if a party is represented by counsel, the time requirements set out in the statute for objections to a support magistrate's final order, when the order is served by mail, do not begin to run until the order is mailed to counsel.
