 1        AN ACT in relation to families.

 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.  The  Illinois  Marriage  and  Dissolution of
 5    Marriage Act is amended by changing Section 603 as follows:

 6        (750 ILCS 5/603) (from Ch. 40, par. 603)
 7        Sec. 603.  Temporary orders Orders.
 8        (a)  A  party  to  a  custody  proceeding,  including   a
 9    proceeding  to  modify  custody,  may  move  for  a temporary
10    custody order. The court may award  temporary  custody  under
11    the standards of Section 602 and the standards and procedures
12    of  Section  602.1,  after  a  hearing,  or,  if  there is no
13    objection, solely on the basis of the affidavits.
14        (b)  If a proceeding for dissolution of marriage or legal
15    separation  or  declaration  of  invalidity  of  marriage  is
16    dismissed, any temporary custody order is  vacated  unless  a
17    parent  or  the  child's  custodian moves that the proceeding
18    continue as a custody proceeding and the court finds, after a
19    hearing, that the circumstances of the parents and  the  best
20    interest  of  the  child  requires that a custody judgment be
21    issued.
22        (c)  If a custody proceeding commenced in the absence  of
23    a  petition  for dissolution of marriage or legal separation,
24    under either subparagraph (ii) of paragraph (1), or paragraph
25    (2), of subsection (d) of  Section  601,  is  dismissed,  any
26    temporary custody order is vacated.
