Synopsis As Introduced
Provides that the Act may be referred to as Kayden's Law. Amends the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act. Requires a court, when appointing a guardian ad litem to represent a child, shall make efforts to appoint a guardian ad litem who received evidence-based education and training relating to child abuse. Includes additional factors for the court to consider when determining the allocation of parenting time. Provides that if the court finds that there is a history of abuse of the child or a household member by a party or a present risk of harm to the child or an abused party and awards any form of parenting time to a party who committed the abuse or who has a household member who committed the abuse, the court shall include in the parenting plan safety conditions, restrictions, or safeguards as reasonably necessary to protect the child or the abused party. Creates various rebuttable presumptions related to a finding of child abuse. Allows the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts to develop and implement an ongoing education and training program for judges and relevant court personnel regarding child abuse. Makes other changes. Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 and the Domestic Violence Act of 1986. Restricts a court from sealing a court file related to a domestic violence order of protection.
