Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Children and Family Services Act. Expands the definition of "relative" to include a fictive kin. Defines "fictive kin" to mean any individual, whether related or unrelated by birth or marriage, who is shown to have close personal or emotional ties with the child or the child's family prior to the child's placement with the individual. Requires a fictive kin with whom a child is placed to apply for licensure as a foster family home pursuant to the Child Care Act of 1969 within 6 months of the child's placement with the fictive kin. Provides that by January 1, 2015, the Department of Children and Family Services shall promulgate rules establishing criteria and standards for placement, identification, and licensure of fictive kin.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
225 ILCS 10/2.04from Ch. 23, par. 2212.04
225 ILCS 10/2.17from Ch. 23, par. 2212.17

In provisions amending the Children and Family Services Act, changes the definition of "fictive kin" to mean any individual, unrelated by birth or marriage, who is shown to have close personal or emotional ties with the child or the child's family prior to the child's placement with the individual (rather than any individual, whether related or unrelated by birth or marriage, who is shown to have close personal or emotional ties with the child or the child's family prior to the child's placement with the individual). Amends the Child Care Act of 1969. Expands the definitions of "relative" to include a fictive kin as defined in the Children and Family Services Act.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Further amends the Children and Family Services Act as follows: Provides that the Department of Children and Family Services shall not remove a child from the home of a fictive kin on the basis that the fictive kin fails to apply for licensure as a foster family home within 6 months of the child's placement with the fictive kin, or fails to meet the standard for licensure. Changes the date by which the Department shall promulgate rules establishing criteria and standards for placement, identification, and licensure of fictive kin from January 1, 2015 to June 1, 2015. Provides that the provisions added to the Children and Family Services Act by this amendatory Act shall become operative on and after June 1, 2015.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
In a provision prohibiting the Department of Children and Family Services from removing a child from the home of a fictive kin on the basis that the fictive kin fails to apply for licensure or fails to meet the standard for licensure, adds language providing that all other requirements established under the rules and procedures of the Department concerning the placement of a child, for whom the Department is legally responsible, with a relative shall apply.
