Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Parentage Act of 1984. Provides that a man may bring an action to declare the non-existence of the parent and child relationship, even after the man has signed an unrescinded acknowledgment of parentage, if, as a result of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) tests, it is discovered that the man adjudicated to be the father is not the natural father of the child. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
750 ILCS 45/5from Ch. 40, par. 2505
750 ILCS 45/7from Ch. 40, par. 2507

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Parentage Act of 1984. Provides that an administrative determination of paternity made under the Illinois Public Aid Code may be challenged in court only on the basis of fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact, with the burden of proof upon the challenging party. Provides that pending the outcome of a challenge to an acknowledgment or administrative determination of paternity, the legal responsibilities of the parties (instead of "signatories") shall remain in full force and effect, except upon order of the court upon a showing of good cause. Provides that a party challenging an administrative determination of paternity must consent to and submit to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) testing, in accordance with Department of Healthcare and Family Services rules, in order to challenge paternity. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2

305 ILCS 5/10-14.1
750 ILCS 45/4.1
750 ILCS 45/8from Ch. 40, par. 2508

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code and the Illinois Parentage Act of 1984. Provides that administrative determination of paternity that is not based on a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity made in accordance with the Illinois Public Aid Code may be challenged in court on the basis of fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact, with the burden of proof upon the challenging party and that, pending outcome of the challenge to the administrative determination of paternity, the legal responsibilities of the parties shall remain in full force and effect, except upon order of the court upon a showing of good cause. Provides that evidence that, based on DNA testing, the man who has been found to be the father of a child under an administrative determination of paternity is not the natural father of the child constitutes a material mistake of fact. Provides that such an action is barred if brought more than 6 months after the effective date of the amendatory Act or more than 2 years after the petitioner obtains actual knowledge of relevant facts, whichever is later and that the 2-year period for bringing an action shall not extend beyond the date on which the child reaches the age of 18 years.
