        AN ACT to amend the domestic relations law, in relation to requiring the

        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Subparagraphs 14 and 15 of paragraph d of subdivision 5  of
     2  part  B  of  section  236  of  the domestic relations law, as amended by
     3  section 1 of part PP of chapter 55 of the laws of 2020, are  amended  to
     4  read as follows:
     5    (14)  whether  either  party  has committed an act or acts of domestic
     6  violence, as described  in  subdivision  one  of  section  four  hundred
     7  fifty-nine-a of the social services law, against the other party and the
     8  nature, extent, duration and impact of such act or acts; [and]
     9    (15) in awarding the possession of a companion animal, the court shall
    10  consider  the  best interest of such animal. "Companion animal", as used

    14  and proper.
