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.

The letters of office and the guardianship shall remain as to any other minors included in the same letters of office or guardianship order.
    (b) Upon the filing of a petition by a minor's living, adoptive, or adjudicated parent whose parental rights have not been terminated, the court shall discharge the guardian and terminate the guardianship if the parent establishes, by a preponderance of the evidence, that a material change in the circumstances of the minor or the parent has occurred since the entry of the order appointing the guardian; unless the guardian establishes, by clear and convincing evidence, that termination of the guardianship would not be in the best interests of the minor. In determining the minor's best interests, the court shall consider all relevant factors including:
        (1) The interaction and interrelationship of the
minor with the parent and members of the parent's household.
        (2) The ability of the parent to provide a safe,
nurturing environment for the minor.
        (3) The relative stability of the parties and the
        (4) The minor's adjustment to his or her home,
school, and community, including the length of time that the minor has lived with the parent and the guardian.
        (5) The nature and extent of visitation between
the parent and the minor and the guardian's ability and willingness to facilitate visitation.
