DECISION & ORDER

In a proceeding pursuant to Family Court Act article 4, the mother appeals and the father cross-appeals from an order of the Family Court, Nassau County (Felice J. Muraca, J.), dated November 29, 2017. The order, insofar as appealed from, denied the mother's objections to so much of an order of the same court (Nadine J. Satterthwaite, S.M.) dated July 28, 2017, as, after a hearing, and upon its findings of fact dated July 20, 2017, imputed monthly income to her in the sum of $8,196.68 in awarding her the sum of only $3,200 per month in child support. The order, insofar as cross-appealed from, denied the father's objections to so much of the order dated July 28, 2017, as, after a hearing, and upon its findings of fact dated July 20, 2017, calculated the parties' respective child support obligations by applying the statutory percentages to the adjusted gross income above the $143,000 statutory cap.

ORDERED that the order dated November 29, 2017, is affirmed insofar as appealed and cross-appealed from, without costs or disbursements.
