Several cases on the issue of contempt related to a party’s  failure to comply with a Pendente Lite Order. (FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE ONLY …NOT TO BE USED IN LITIGATION)

A party’s acknowledged failure to comply with certain provisions of a pendente lite Order (in motion papers) may result in an Order holding the other party in contempt of Court, without a hearing (on papers alone), (see Domestic Relations Law § 245; Lopez v Ajose, 33 AD3d 976York v York, 250 AD2d 838; Turk v Turk, 226 AD2d 448; Farkas v Farkas, 209 AD2d 316); where the nonmoving party’s claim of reduced income is unsubstantiated and thus “insufficient to warrant a hearing” (Farkas v Farkas, 209 AD2d at 317-318; see Lopez v Ajose, 33 AD3d 976Ovsanikow v Ovsanikow, 224 AD2d 786; Rosenblitt v Rosenblitt, 121 AD2d 375).
