    AN ACT concerning civil law.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Uniform Child-Custody Jurisdiction and
Enforcement Act is amended by changing Section 209 as follows:
    (750 ILCS 36/209)
    Sec. 209. Information To Be Submitted To Court.
    (a) Subject to any other law providing for the
confidentiality of procedures, addresses, and other
identifying information, in a child-custody proceeding, each
party, in its first pleading or in an attached affidavit, shall
give information, if reasonably ascertainable, under oath as to
the child's present address or whereabouts, the places where
the child has lived during the last five years, and the names
and present addresses of the persons with whom the child has
lived during that period. The pleading or affidavit must state
whether the party:
        (1) has participated, as a party or witness or in any
    other capacity, in any other proceeding concerning the
    custody of or visitation with the child and, if so,
    identify the court, the case number, and the date of the
    child-custody determination, if any;
        (2) knows of any proceeding that could affect the
    current proceeding, including proceedings for enforcement
    and proceedings relating to domestic violence, protective
    orders, termination of parental rights, and adoptions and,
    if so, identify the court, the case number, and the nature
    of the proceeding; and
        (3) knows the names and addresses of any person not a
    party to the proceeding who has physical custody of the
    child or claims rights of legal custody or physical custody
    of, or visitation with, the child and, if so, the names and
    addresses of those persons.
    (b) If the information required by subsection (a) is not
furnished, the court, upon motion of a party or its own motion,
may stay the proceeding until the information is furnished.
    (c) If the declaration as to any of the items described in
subsection (a)(1) through (3) is in the affirmative, the
declarant shall give additional information under oath as
required by the court. The court may examine the parties under
oath as to details of the information furnished and other
matters pertinent to the court's jurisdiction and the
disposition of the case.
    (d) Each party has a continuing duty to inform the court of
any proceeding in this or any other state that could affect the
current proceeding.
    (e) (Blank).
    (f) If a party states in the pleading or the affidavit that
disclosure of an address would risk abuse or harm to the party
or a family member, the address may be omitted from documents
filed with the court. A party is not required to include in the
pleading or affidavit a domestic violence safe house address or
an address changed as a result of a protective order.
