Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(20 ILCS 1805/30.25)
Stay of prosecution.
During and for a period of 14 days
after a period of military service
in excess of 29 days, a court having jurisdiction over the
any civil obligation or
liability, the prosecution of any civil suit or proceeding, or the entry or
of any civil order, writ, judgment, or decree may stay, postpone, or suspend
the matter if the court
determines that a service member's failure to meet the obligation is the direct
of that period of military service. The stay, postponement, or
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
written agreement entered into, or debt that is incurred, by the person during
or after his or her period
of military service. A violation of this Section constitutes a
civil rights violation under the Illinois Human Rights Act. All proceeds from the collection of any civil penalty
imposed under this Section shall be deposited into the Illinois Military Family Relief Fund.
