March 20, 2009
IN THE MATTER OF TERESA A. GIARDINA, PETITIONER-RESPONDENT,
TERRY L. CAMPBELL, SR., RESPONDENT-APPELLANT.
Appeal from an order of the Family Court, Steuben County (Joseph W. Latham, J.), entered January 3, 2008 in a proceeding pursuant to Family Court Act article 8. The order granted petitioner an order of protection, effective through January 3, 2010.

This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
PRESENT: HURLBUTT, J.P., SMITH, FAHEY, GREEN, AND PINE, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the order so appealed from is unanimously affirmed without costs.
Respondent appeals from an order that granted petitioner an order of protection against him, effective for two years. Contrary to respondent's contention, Family Court Act § 842, as amended in 2003, allows an order of protection to be effective for up to two years without a finding of aggravating circumstances (see L 2003, ch 579, § 1).
