Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (755 ILCS 6/11-25)
    Sec. 11-25. Recognition of electronic nontestamentary estate planning document and electronic signature.
    (a) A nontestamentary estate planning document or a signature on a nontestamentary estate planning document may not be denied legal effect or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form.
    (b) If other law of this State or a will or the terms of a trust governing the nontestamentary estate planning document require a nontestamentary estate planning document to be in writing, an electronic record of the document satisfies the requirement.
    (c) If other law of this State requires a signature on a nontestamentary estate planning document, an electronic signature satisfies the requirement.
