  Section 1. Subdivision 4 of section 1056 of the family court  act,  as
added by chapter 622 of the laws of 1990, is amended to read as follows:
  4.  The  court  may  enter an order of protection independently of any
other order made under this part, against a person who [was a member  of
the  child's  household  or  a  person legally responsible as defined in
section one thousand twelve of this chapter, and  who  is  no  longer  a
member  of  such household at the time of the disposition and who is not
related by blood or marriage to the child or a  member  of  the  child's
household]  IS  NOT THE CHILD'S BIOLOGICAL PARENT OR ADOPTIVE PARENT, OR
AGAINST A CHILD'S BIOLOGICAL OR ADOPTIVE PARENT WHO HAS  BEEN  FOUND  TO
HAVE  SEVERELY ABUSED ANY CHILD. An order of protection entered pursuant
to this subdivision may be for any period of  time  up  to  the  child's
eighteenth  birthday  and upon such conditions as the court deems neces-
sary and proper to protect the health and safety of the  child  and  the
child's caretaker.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
