1no contact order prior to adjudication where the petitioner is
2represented by the State shall operate as a dismissal without
3prejudice. No action for a stalking no contact order shall be
4dismissed because the respondent is being prosecuted for a
5crime against the petitioner. For any action commenced under

11division.
12    (c) No fee shall be charged by the clerk of the court for
13filing petitions or modifying or certifying orders. No fee

16this Section.
17    (d) The court shall provide, through the office of the
18clerk of the court, simplified forms for filing of a petition

2        (2) the requirements of Section 80 are satisfied; and
3        (3) there is good cause to grant the remedy,

17the court finds that items (1), (2), and (3) of this subsection
18(a) are met.
19    (a-5) When a petition for an emergency stalking no contact
20order is granted, the petition, order, and file shall not be
21public and shall only be accessible to the court, law
22enforcement, petitioner, victim advocate, counsel of record
23for either party, and the State's Attorney for the county
24shall not be publicly available until the order is served on

11    the judge finds that there is an immediate and present
12    danger of abuse against the petitioner and that the
13    petitioner has satisfied the prerequisites set forth in
14    subsection (a), that judge may issue an emergency stalking
15    no contact order.
16        (2) The chief judge of the circuit court may designate
17    for each county in the circuit at least one judge to be
18    reasonably available to issue orally, by telephone, by

7    (b-6) When the petitioner and the respondent attend the
8same public or private elementary, middle, or high school, the
9court when issuing a civil no contact order and providing
10relief shall consider the severity of the act, any continuing
11physical danger or emotional distress to the petitioner, the
12educational rights guaranteed to the petitioner and respondent
13under federal and State law, the availability of a transfer of

1the respondent is not available. The respondent also bears the
2burden of production with respect to the expense, difficulty,
3and educational disruption that would be caused by a transfer
4of the respondent to another school. A transfer, change of
5placement, or change of program is not unavailable to the
6respondent solely on the ground that the respondent does not
7agree with the school district's or private or non-public
8school's transfer, change of placement, or change of program
9or solely on the ground that the respondent fails or refuses to
10consent to or otherwise does not take an action required to
11effectuate a transfer, change of placement, or change of
12program. When a court orders a respondent to stay away from the
13public, private, or non-public school attended by the
14petitioner and the respondent requests a transfer to another
15attendance center within the respondent's school district or
16private or non-public school, the school district or private
17or non-public school shall have sole discretion to determine
18the attendance center to which the respondent is transferred.
19In the event the court order results in a transfer of the minor
20respondent to another attendance center, a change in the
21respondent's placement, or a change of the respondent's
22program, the parents, guardian, or legal custodian of the
23respondent is responsible for transportation and other costs
24associated with the transfer or change.
25    (b-7) The court may order the parents, guardian, or legal
26custodian of a minor respondent to take certain actions or to

 

 

SB3157 Engrossed- 10 -LRB102 20296 LNS 29148 b

1refrain from taking certain actions to ensure that the
2respondent complies with the order. In the event the court
3orders a transfer of the respondent to another school, the
4parents or legal guardians of the respondent are responsible
5for transportation and other costs associated with the change
6of school by the respondent.
7    (c) Denial of a remedy may not be based, in whole or in
8part, on evidence that:
9        (1) the respondent has cause for any use of force,
10    unless that cause satisfies the standards for justifiable
11    use of force provided by Article 7 of the Criminal Code of
12    2012;
13        (2) the respondent was voluntarily intoxicated;
14        (3) the petitioner acted in self-defense or defense of
15    another, provided that, if the petitioner utilized force,
16    such force was justifiable under Article 7 of the Criminal
17    Code of 2012;
18        (4) the petitioner did not act in self-defense or
19    defense of another;
20        (5) the petitioner left the residence or household to
21    avoid further non-consensual sexual conduct or
22    non-consensual sexual penetration by the respondent; or
23        (6) the petitioner did not leave the residence or
24    household to avoid further non-consensual sexual conduct
25    or non-consensual sexual penetration by the respondent.

11            (i) For the remedies of "prohibition of abuse"
12        described in Section 214(b)(1), "stay away order and
13        additional prohibitions" described in Section
14        214(b)(3), "removal or concealment of minor child"
15        described in Section 214(b)(8), "order to appear"
16        described in Section 214(b)(9), "physical care and
17        possession of the minor child" described in Section
18        214(b)(5), "protection of property" described in
19        Section 214(b)(11), "prohibition of entry" described
20        in Section 214(b)(14), "prohibition of firearm
21        possession" described in Section 214(b)(14.5),
22        "prohibition of access to records" described in
23        Section 214(b)(15), and "injunctive relief" described

3            (ii) For the remedy of "grant of exclusive
4        possession of residence" described in Section
5        214(b)(2), the immediate danger of further abuse of

7        chosen to remain in the residence or household while
8        respondent was given any prior notice or greater

10        to obtain judicial relief, outweighs the hardships to
11        respondent of an emergency order granting petitioner
12        exclusive possession of the residence or household.
13        This remedy shall not be denied because petitioner has
14        or could obtain temporary shelter elsewhere while
15        prior notice is given to respondent, unless the
16        hardships to respondent from exclusion from the home
17        substantially outweigh those to petitioner;
18            (iii) For the remedy of "possession of personal
19        property" described in Section 214(b)(10), improper
20        disposition of the personal property would be likely
21        to occur if respondent were given any prior notice, or
22        greater notice than was actually given, of
23        petitioner's efforts to obtain judicial relief, or
24        petitioner has an immediate and pressing need for
25        possession of that property.
