Adds reference to:
735 ILCS 5/21-103from Ch. 110, par. 21-103

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Code of Civil Procedure. Provides that the publication requirement is not required in any application for a change of name involving a person who files with the court a written declaration, made under penalty of perjury by a licensed health care professional or licensed mental health professional who has treated or evaluated the person seeking a change of name, stating that the person has an intersex condition or has undergone treatment that is clinically appropriate for the individual for the purpose of gender transition, based on contemporary medical standards.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes language providing that the publication requirement is not required in any application for a change of name involving a person who files with the court a written declaration, made under penalty of perjury by a licensed health care professional or licensed mental health professional who has treated or evaluated the person seeking a change of name, stating that the person has an intersex condition or has undergone treatment that is clinically appropriate for the individual for the purpose of gender transition, based on contemporary medical standards. Provides instead that: upon motion, the court may issue an order directing that the notice and publication requirement be waived for a change of name involving a person who files with the court a written declaration that the person believes that publishing notice of the name change would put the person at risk of physical harm or discrimination; and the person must provide evidence in support of the motion.
