Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986 and the Protective Orders Article of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. To the list of protected persons, adds any of the following persons abused by a family or household member of a child: (1) a foster parent of that child if the child has been placed in the foster parent's home by the Department of Children and Family Services or by another state's public child welfare agency; (2) a legally appointed guardian or legally appointed custodian of that child; (3) an adoptive parent of that child; or (4) a prospective adoptive parent of that child if the child has been placed in the prospective adoptive parent's home pursuant to the Adoption Act or pursuant to another state's law. Includes these persons in the list of persons permitted to file a petition for an order of protection. Provides that, for purposes of the provisions of the amendatory Act, individuals who would have been considered "family or household members" of the child before a termination of the parental rights with respect to the child continue to meet the definition of "family or household members" of the child.
