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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Rights of creditor.
(a) On application by a judgment creditor of a member or transferee, a court may enter a charging order against the distributional interest of the judgment debtor for the unsatisfied amount of the judgment. A charging order constitutes a lien on a judgment debtor's distributional interest and requires the limited liability company to pay over to the person to which the charging order was issued any distribution that would otherwise be paid to the judgment debtor. A charging order grants no other rights with respect to the assets or affairs of the company.
(b) To the extent necessary to effectuate the collection of distributions pursuant to a charging order in effect under subsection (a), the court may:
(1) appoint a receiver of the distributions subject
to the charging order, with the power to make all inquiries the judgment debtor might have made; and
(2) make all other orders necessary to give effect
(c) At any time the court may foreclose the lien and order the sale of the distributional interest. The purchaser at the foreclosure sale obtains only the distributional interest, does not thereby become a member, and is subject to Section 30-10.
(d) At any time before foreclosure under subsection (c), the member or transferee whose distributional interest is subject to a charging order under subsection (a) may extinguish the charging order by satisfying the judgment and filing a certified copy of the satisfaction with the court that issued the charging order.
(e) At any time before foreclosure under subsection (c), a limited liability company or one or more members whose distributional interests are not subject to the charging order may satisfy the judgment and thereby succeed to the rights of the judgment creditor, including the charging order.
(f) This Act does not deprive any member or transferee of the benefit of any exemption laws applicable to the member's or transferee's distributional interest.
(g) This Section provides the exclusive remedy by which a person seeking to enforce a judgment against a member or transferee may, in the capacity of judgment creditor, satisfy the judgment from the judgment debtor's distributional interest. If and to the extent that other law permits a judgment creditor to obtain a lien against the distributional interest or other rights of a member or transferee of a member, the lien shall be treated as a charging order subject to all the provisions of this Section.
