Short description: 
MINORS-PERMANENCY-ADOPTION CON                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Abused, Neglected or Dependent Minors Article  of  the      
   Juvenile Court Act of 1987. In provisions listing the permanency goals      
   that the court may set at the permanency hearing, provides that one of      
   the  goals  is  that  the minor over age 15 (instead of 12) will be in      
   substitute  care  pending  independence.  Amends  the  Adoption   Act.      
   Provides  that  a  consent  to  an adoption is voidable after one year      
   (rather than void) if the person who consents to the adoption does not      
   file a petition to adopt the child within one year after  the  consent      
   is  signed and the parent files a timely motion to revoke the consent.      
   In cases in which a minor is subject to a petition to  be  adjudged  a      
   dependent,  neglected, or abused minor under the Juvenile Court Act of      
   1987, reduces from one year to 6 months the time  period  in  which  a      
   minor  or  sibling of the minor must have resided with a foster parent      
   who seeks to adopt the minor in order for the  parents  to  execute  a      
   consent to the adoption of the child by the foster parents.                 
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Children and Family Services)             
          SB 840 has no fiscal impact.
