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

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.

If the court determines, in accordance with Sections 124B-125 through 124B-135, that an innocent owner has a partial interest in property otherwise subject to forfeiture, or a joint tenancy or tenancy by the entirety in that property, the court may enter an appropriate order doing any of the following:
(1) Severing and releasing the property.
(2) Transferring the property to the State with a
provision that the State compensate the innocent owner to the extent of his or her ownership interest once a final order of forfeiture has been entered and the property has been reduced to liquid assets.
(3) Permitting the innocent owner to retain the
property subject to a lien in favor of the State to the extent of the forfeitable interest in the property.
