Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Guardians for Adults With Disabilities Article of the Probate Act of 1975. Provides that an adult child, spouse, adult grandchild, parent, adult sibling, or other interested person (instead of an adult child) may petition for visitation privileges with the ward. Provides that "other interested person" means any person who has a significant, ongoing relationship based on or productive of strong affection.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill, and removes the added references to and definition of interested persons.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the engrossed bill, and makes the following changes: (1) deletes language requiring the court to find that the visitation is in the ward's best interests; and (2) provides that the court shall not allow visitation if the court finds that the ward has capacity to evaluate and communicate decisions regarding visitation and expresses a desire not to have visitation with the petitioner.
