Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that any time prior to a minor's 18th birthday, under a supplemental petition, the court may reinstate wardship and open a previously closed case when: (1) wardship and guardianship under the Act was vacated in conjunction with the appointment of a private guardian under the Probate Act of 1975; or (2) the minor is not presently a ward of the court under the Act nor is there a petition for adjudication of wardship pending on behalf of the minor; and it is in the minor's best interest that wardship be reinstated. Provides that any time prior to a minor's 21st birthday, under a supplemental petition, the court may reinstate wardship and open a previously closed case when: (1) wardship and guardianship under the Act was vacated under an order by the court finding that the health, safety, and the best interests of the minor and the public no longer require the wardship of the court in the case of a minor over the age of 18; or (2) closure of a case where the court determined that the health, safety, and best interests of the minor and the public no longer require the warship of the court in the case of a minor under the age of 18 who has been partially or completely emancipated in accordance with the Emancipation of Minors Act; or (3) the wardship order terminated based on the minor's attaining the age of 19 years; or (4) the minor is not presently a ward of the court under the Act nor is there a petition for adjudication of wardship pending on behalf of the minor; and it is in the minor's best interest that wardship be reinstated.
