Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

    Sec. 2-33. Supplemental petition to reinstate wardship.
    (1) Any time prior to a minor's 18th birthday, pursuant to a supplemental petition filed under this Section, the court may reinstate wardship and open a previously closed case when:
        (a) wardship and guardianship under the Juvenile
    
Court Act of 1987 was vacated in conjunction with the appointment of a private guardian under the Probate Act of 1975;
        (b) the minor is not presently a ward of the court
    
under Article II of this Act nor is there a petition for adjudication of wardship pending on behalf of the minor; and
        (c) it is in the minor's best interest that wardship
    
be reinstated.
    (2) Any time prior to a minor's 21st birthday, pursuant to a supplemental petition filed under this Section, the court may reinstate wardship and open a previously closed case when:
        (a) wardship and guardianship under this Act was
    
vacated pursuant to:
            (i) an order entered under subsection (2) of
        
Section 2-31 in the case of a minor over the age of 18;
            (ii) closure of a case under subsection (2) of
        
Section 2-31 in the case of a minor under the age of 18 who has been partially or completely emancipated in accordance with the Emancipation of Minors Act; or
            (iii) an order entered under subsection (3) of
        
Section 2-31 based on the minor's attaining the age of 19 years;
        (b) the minor is not presently a ward of the court
    
under Article II of this Act nor is there a petition for adjudication of wardship pending on behalf of the minor; and
        (c) it is in the minor's best interest that wardship
    
be reinstated.
    (3) The supplemental petition must be filed in the same proceeding in which the original adjudication order was entered. Unless excused by court for good cause shown, the petitioner shall give notice of the time and place of the hearing on the supplemental petition, in person or by mail, to the minor, if the minor is 14 years of age or older, and to the parties to the juvenile court proceeding. Notice shall be provided at least 3 court days in advance of the hearing date.

    (5) Whenever a minor is committed to the Department of Children and Family Services for care and services following the reinstatement of wardship under this Section, the Department shall:
        (a) Within 30 days of such commitment, prepare and
    
file with the court a case plan which complies with the federal Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980 and is consistent with the health, safety and best interests of the minor; and
        (b) Promptly refer the minor for such services as are
    
necessary and consistent with the minor's health, safety and best interests.
