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.

705 ILCS 5/7.5

    (705 ILCS 5/7.5)
    Sec. 7.5. Electronic filing pilot program. The Supreme Court may establish a pilot program for the filing of petitions for temporary orders of protection by electronic means and for the issuance of such orders by audio-visual means pursuant to the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986. The administrative director shall maintain an up-to-date and publicly-available listing of the sites, if any, at which a petition for an ex parte temporary order of protection may be filed, and at which electronic appearances in support of the petition may be made, in accordance with the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986. In developing the pilot program, the administrative director shall strive for a program that is regionally diverse and takes into consideration, among other things, the availability of public transportation, population density, and the availability of facilities for conducting the program.
