Provides that a child custody proceeding may be commenced by a biological, adoptive, or "intended parent" only (instead of by a parent) and deletes provisions authorizing commencement of a child custody proceeding by a person other than a parent. Provides that a person is an "intended parent" if he or she is not a biological or adoptive parent to the child, is or was in a committed intimate relationship with a child's custodial parent, lives or lived with the minor child and the child's custodial parent for no less than 2 consecutive years, within no more than 6 months prior to the filing of the petition for custody, and together with the child's custodial parent held himself or herself out to the community and to the child as the child's parent. Sets forth exceptions. Changes provisions concerning notice of a child custody proceeding, notice of proceedings for modification of a previous custody order, and appointment of an attorney for a minor child or child's representative. Amends the Probate Act of 1975. Makes various changes regarding who may file a petition for guardianship of the person of a child, rights to custody, the standard for appointing a guardian of the person of a child, the rights and obligations of a guardian of the person of a child, the duration of a guardianship of the person of a child, vacating a guardianship, and termination of a guardianship. Effective January 1, 2008.
