Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 45. Licenses; renewals; restoration; person in military service.
    (a) The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. As a condition for renewal of a license, the licensee shall be required to complete continuing education under requirements set forth in rules of the Department.
    (b) Any person who has permitted his or her license to expire may have his or her license restored by making application to the Department and filing proof acceptable to the Department of fitness to have his or her license restored, which may include sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, complying with any continuing education requirements, and paying the required restoration fee.
    (c) If the person has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, the Board shall determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, the person's fitness to resume active status and may require the person to complete a period of evaluated clinical experience and successful completion of a practical examination.
    However, any person whose license expired while he or she has been engaged (i) in federal service on active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States or called into service or training with the State Militia, or (ii) in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military service may have his or her license renewed or restored without paying any lapsed renewal fees if, within 2 years after honorable termination of the service, training or education, except under condition other than honorable, he or she furnishes the Department with satisfactory evidence to the effect that he or she has been so engaged and that the service, training, or education has been so terminated.
    (d) Any person who notifies the Department, in writing on forms prescribed by the Department, may place his or her license on inactive status and shall be excused from the payment of renewal fees until the person notifies the Department in writing of the intention to resume active practice.
    (e) Any person requesting his or her license be changed from inactive to active status shall be required to pay the current renewal fee and shall also demonstrate compliance with the continuing education requirements.
    (f) Any marriage and family therapist or associate licensed marriage and family therapist whose license is nonrenewed or on inactive status shall not engage in the practice of marriage and family therapy in the State of Illinois and use the title or advertise that he or she performs the services of a "licensed marriage and family therapist" or an "associate licensed marriage and family therapist".
    (g) Any person violating subsection (f) of this Section shall be considered to be practicing without a license and will be subject to the disciplinary provisions of this Act.
