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

  Section 1. Subdivision (j) of section 1012 of the family court act, as
amended by section 3 of part B of chapter 3 of  the  laws  of  2005,  is
amended to read as follows:

section three hundred eighty-four-b of the social services law; or where

this section, provided that the respondent or respondents in each of the

social services provide reunification services to the parent, the parent
has stated in court under oath that he or she  intends  to  continue  to
refuse  such necessary services and is unwilling to secure such services
independently  or  otherwise  prepare  for  the  child's  return   home;
provided,  however,  that if the court finds that adequate justification
exists for the failure to engage in or secure such  services,  including
