Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code, the Illinois Marriage and
Dissolution of Marriage Act, the Non-Support of Spouse and Children
Act, the Revised Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act, and
the Illinois Parentage Act of 1984. Provides that a child support
order shall include a provision requiring the obligor to report to the
obligee each time the obligor obtains new employment and each time the
obligor's employment is terminated for any reason. Failure to so
report is indirect criminal contempt, with bond for any obligor
arrested for failure to report new employment being set in the amount
of the child support that should have been paid during the period of
unreported employment. Provides the order shall also include a
provision requiring that both the obligor and obligee parent advise
each other of a change in residence within 5 days of the change.
There may be an increase in judicial workloads; it is not pos-
sible to determine impact on the number of judges needed.
FISCAL NOTE (Dpt. Public Aid)
No additional administrative expenditures from SB368.
STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (DCCA)
SB368 fails to create a State mandate.
HOME RULE NOTE
SB 368 does not preempt home rule authority.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that in addition to reporting to the obligee the obligor
must report to the clerk of the court and that the report must be made
within 10 days and be in writing, including the name and address of
the new employer. Provides that failure to report new employment or
termination of employment is indirect criminal contempt if it is
coupled with nonpayment of support for a period in excess of 60 days.
GOVERNOR'S AMENDATORY VETO MESSAGE
Recommends that the provision requiring each party to report to
the other within 5 days of a change of address be amended to provide
an exception when the court finds that the physical, mental, or emo-
tional health of a party or that of a minor child, or both, would be
seriously endangered by the disclosure of the party's address.
