Provides that if an alleged father fails to respond to a notice, or fails to comply with an administrative order to submit to genetic testing, the Department may apply to the court for a summons and order compelling the alleged father to submit to genetic testing at a specified time and place. Provides that if the alleged father fails to comply with the summons or order, the Department may seek to enforce the court order with contempt proceedings. Amends the Illinois Parentage Act of 1984. Provides that in an action to declare the non-existence of the parent and child relationship and in any action to determine the existence of the father and child relationship, except those based upon the presumptions of paternity provided for in the Act, the judgment shall not be rendered unless DNA tests have been conducted. Amends the Vital Records Act.
