Pursuant to the authority vested in me, and with the advice and consent of the Administrative Board of the Courts, I hereby promulgate, effective September 1, 2009, new section 202.16-a of the Uniform Civil Rules for the Supreme and County Courts, relating to automatic orders in matrimonial actions, to read as follows:

(b) Service. The plaintiff in a matrimonial action shall cause to be served upon the defendant, simultaneous with the service of the summons, a copy of the automatic orders set forth in this section in a notice that substantially conforms to the notice contained in Appendix F. The automatic orders shall be binding upon the plaintiff immediately upon filing of the summons, or summons and complaint, and upon the defendant immediately upon service of the automatic orders with the summons.
(c) Automatic Orders. The automatic orders served with the summons shall provide as follows:

(3) Neither party shall incur unreasonable debts hereafter, including but not limited to further borrowing against any credit line secured by the family residence, further encumbrancing any assets, or unreasonably using credit cards or cash advances against credit cards, except in the usual course of business or for customary or usual household expenses, or for reasonable attorney's fees in connection with this action.
