Introduced  by  Sen.  ROBACH -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Children and Families

AN ACT to amend the domestic relations law, the family court act and the
  criminal procedure  law,  in  relation  to  the  scope  of  orders  of
  protection and temporary orders of protection

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraph b of subdivision 3 of section 240 of the domestic
relations law, as amended by chapter 597 of the laws of 1998, is amended
and a new paragraph i is added to read as follows:
  b. An order of protection entered pursuant to this  subdivision  shall
bear  in  a  conspicuous  manner,  on  the front page of said order, the
language "Order of protection issued pursuant  to  section  two  hundred
forty  of  the  domestic relations law".   THE ORDER OF PROTECTION SHALL
ALSO CONTAIN THE FOLLOWING NOTICE: "THIS ORDER OF PROTECTION WILL REMAIN
IN EFFECT EVEN IF THE PROTECTED PARTY HAS, OR CONSENTS TO HAVE,  CONTACT
OR  COMMUNICATION  WITH THE PARTY AGAINST WHOM THE ORDER IS ISSUED. THIS
ORDER OF PROTECTION CAN ONLY BE MODIFIED OR TERMINATED BY THE COURT. THE
PROTECTED PARTY CANNOT BE HELD TO VIOLATE THIS ORDER NOR BE ARRESTED FOR
VIOLATING THIS ORDER.". The absence of such language  shall  not  affect
the validity of such order.  The presentation of a copy of such an order
to  any  peace  officer acting pursuant to his or her special duties, or
police officer, shall constitute authority, for that officer to arrest a
person when that person has violated the terms of  such  an  order,  and
bring such person before the court and, otherwise, so far as lies within
the  officer's  power,  to aid in securing the protection such order was
intended to afford.
  I. THE PROTECTED PARTY IN WHOSE  FAVOR  THE  ORDER  OF  PROTECTION  OR
TEMPORARY  ORDER OF PROTECTION IS ISSUED MAY NOT BE HELD TO VIOLATE SUCH
AN ORDER NOR MAY SUCH PROTECTED PARTY BE  ARRESTED  FOR  VIOLATING  SUCH
ORDER.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
