Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Spouse and Child Awards Article of the Probate Act of 1975. Provides that a surviving spouse is allowed as the surviving spouse's own property, for each adult child of the decedent who is likely to become a public charge and was financially dependent on the decedent and resided with the surviving spouse at the time of the decedent's death, a sum of at least $5,000 that the court deems reasonable, or to which the parties agree, for the proper support of the adult child for the period of 9 months after the death of the decedent in a manner suited to the condition in life of the adult child of the decedent and to the condition of the estate. Provides that, if an adult child of the decedent likely to become a public charge who was financially dependent on the decedent did not reside with the surviving spouse at the time of the decedent's death, the adult child is allowed a sum of at least $5,000 that the court deems reasonable or to which the parties agree. Contains provisions regarding: distribution; the death of the surviving spouse; abandonment of an adult child; notice requirements and time limits; applicability; and other matters.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes language providing that if the surviving spouse dies before the award for support of the adult child is paid in full, the amount unpaid shall be paid to the estate of the surviving spouse.
