    Sec. 5.1. Stay of prosecution. During and for a period of 14 days after a period of military service with the State of Illinois or in federal active duty service pursuant to the orders of the President of the United States or the Governor, a court having jurisdiction over the enforcement of any civil obligation or liability, the prosecution of any civil suit or proceeding, or the entry or enforcement of any civil order, writ, judgment, or decree may stay, postpone, or suspend the matter if the court determines that a person's failure to meet the obligation is the direct result of the aforementioned period of military service. The stay, postponement, or suspension of proceedings does not in any way modify any condition, obligation, term, or liability agreed upon or incurred by a person in military service including but not limited to accrued interest, late fees, or penalties. No stay, postponement, or suspension shall be provided regarding any written agreement entered into, or debt that is incurred, by the person during or after his or her period of military service.
