6    (725 ILCS 5/112A-20)  (from Ch. 38, par. 112A-20)
7    Sec. 112A-20. Duration and extension of final protective
9    (a) (Blank).
10    (b) A final protective order shall remain in effect as
12        (1) if entered during pre-trial release, until
13    disposition, withdrawal, or dismissal of the underlying
14    charge; if, however, the case is continued as an
15    independent cause of action, the order's duration may be
16    for a fixed period of time not to exceed 2 years;



10200HB0734ham002- 2 -LRB102 11400 KMF 24110 a

1        (2) if in effect in conjunction with a bond forfeiture
2    warrant, until final disposition or an additional period
3    of time not exceeding 2 years; no domestic violence order
4    of protection, however, shall be terminated by a dismissal
5    that is accompanied by the issuance of a bond forfeiture
6    warrant;
7        (3) until 2 years after the expiration of any
8    supervision, conditional discharge, probation, periodic
9    imprisonment, parole, aftercare release, or mandatory
10    supervised release for domestic violence orders of
11    protection and civil no contact orders; or
12        (4) until 2 years after the date set by the court for
13    expiration of any sentence of imprisonment and subsequent
14    parole, aftercare release, or mandatory supervised release
15    for domestic violence orders of protection and civil no
16    contact orders; and
17        (5) permanent for a stalking no contact order if a
18    judgment of conviction for stalking is entered; or .
19        (6) permanent for a civil no contact order at the
20    victim's request if a judgment of conviction for criminal
21    sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual assault,
22    criminal sexual abuse, excluding a conviction under
23    subsection (c) of Section 11-1.50 of the Criminal Code of
24    2012, or aggravated criminal sexual abuse is entered.
25    (c) Computation of time. The duration of a domestic
26violence order of protection shall not be reduced by the



10200HB0734ham002- 3 -LRB102 11400 KMF 24110 a

1duration of any prior domestic violence order of protection.
2    (d) Law enforcement records. When a protective order
3expires upon the occurrence of a specified event, rather than
4upon a specified date as provided in subsection (b), no
5expiration date shall be entered in Department of State Police
6records. To remove the protective order from those records,
7either the petitioner or the respondent shall request the
8clerk of the court to file a certified copy of an order stating
9that the specified event has occurred or that the protective
10order has been vacated or modified with the sheriff, and the
11sheriff shall direct that law enforcement records shall be
12promptly corrected in accordance with the filed order.
13    (e) Extension of Orders. Any domestic violence order of
14protection or civil no contact order that expires 2 years
15after the expiration of the defendant's sentence under
16paragraph (2), (3), or (4) of subsection (b) of Section
17112A-20 of this Article may be extended one or more times, as
18required. The petitioner, petitioner's counsel, or the State's
19Attorney on the petitioner's behalf shall file the motion for
20an extension of the final protective order in the criminal
21case and serve the motion in accordance with Supreme Court
22Rules 11 and 12. The court shall transfer the motion to the
23appropriate court or division for consideration under
24subsection (e) of Section 220 of the Illinois Domestic
25Violence Act of 1986, subsection (c) of Section 216 of the
26Civil No Contact Order Act, or subsection (c) of Section 105 of



10200HB0734ham002- 4 -LRB102 11400 KMF 24110 a

1the Stalking No Contact Order as appropriate.
2    (f) Termination date. Any final protective order which
3would expire on a court holiday shall instead expire at the
4close of the next court business day.
5    (g) Statement of purpose. The practice of dismissing or
6suspending a criminal prosecution in exchange for issuing a
7protective order undermines the purposes of this Article. This
8Section shall not be construed as encouraging that practice.

19the protective order were committed, to the extent consistent
20with the venue provisions of this Article. Nothing in this
21Article shall preclude any Illinois court from enforcing any
22valid protective order issued in another state. Illinois
23courts may enforce protective orders through both criminal
24prosecution and contempt proceedings, unless the action which
25is second in time is barred by collateral estoppel or the
