Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Probate Act of 1975. Provides that the Illinois Supreme Court or any circuit court of this State may adopt rules permitting the use of video conferencing equipment in any adult guardianship hearing. Provides that if the parties, including the respondent, and their attorneys, including the State Guardian or public guardian or an authorized representative of the State Guardian or public guardian, agree, one or multiple participants may testify by video conferencing equipment from any location in the absence of a court rule specifically prohibiting that testimony.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
755 ILCS 5/11a-10from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 11a-10

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Probate Act of 1975. Provides that the Illinois Supreme Court or any circuit court of this State may adopt rules permitting the use of video conferencing equipment in any adult guardianship hearing upon a showing that all other means of accommodating in-person testimony have been exhausted or that a participant will suffer harm if required to attend in person. Provides that if the parties, including the respondent, and their attorneys agree, one or multiple participants may testify by video conferencing equipment from any location in the absence of a court rule specifically prohibiting that testimony and notwithstanding any provisions of the Act to the contrary. Makes a corresponding change in provisions governing notice that must be provided to the respondent.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Probate Act of 1975. In a provision requiring a summons to be served on the respondent prior to an adult guardianship hearing, requires the summons to include a notice that if the respondent is unable to attend the hearing in person, the Judge can decide to hold the hearing at a place that is convenient and can also follow the rule of the Illinois Supreme Court, or its local equivalent, and decide if a video conference is appropriate. Provides that any circuit court of the State may adopt rules consistent with the rules of the Illinois Supreme Court permitting the use of video conferencing equipment in any adult guardianship hearing; and that no rule shall preclude a party from seeking the presentation of testimony in accordance with a specified Supreme Court Rule.
