further time the court may allow within the 30 days or any
extensions thereof, file a motion for a rehearing, or a
retrial, or modification of the judgment or to vacate the

    Section 10. The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of
Marriage Act is amended by changing Section 413 as follows:
 
    (750 ILCS 5/413)  (from Ch. 40, par. 413)
    Sec. 413. Judgment.) (a) A judgment of dissolution of
marriage or of legal separation or of declaration of invalidity
of marriage is final when entered, subject to the right of
appeal. An appeal from the judgment of dissolution of marriage
that does not challenge the finding as to grounds does not
delay the finality of that provision of the judgment which
dissolves the marriage, beyond the time for appealing from that
provision, and either of the parties may remarry pending
appeal. An order requiring maintenance or directing payment of
money for support or maintenance of a the spouse or a the minor
child or children entered under this Act or any other law of
this State shall not be suspended or the enforcement thereof
stayed pending the filing and resolution of post-judgment
motions or an appeal.
    (b) The clerk of the court shall give notice of the entry
of a judgment of dissolution of marriage or legal separation or
a declaration of invalidity of marriage:
    (1) if the marriage is registered in this State, to the
county clerk of the county where the marriage is registered,
who shall enter the fact of dissolution of marriage or legal
separation or declaration of invalidity of marriage in the
marriage registry; and within 45 days after the close of the
month in which the judgment is entered, the clerk shall forward
the certificate to the Department of Public Health on a form
furnished by the Department; or
    (2) if the marriage is registered in another jurisdiction,
to the appropriate official of that jurisdiction, with the
request that he enter the fact of dissolution of marriage or
legal separation or declaration of invalidity of marriage in
the appropriate record.
    (c) Upon request by a wife whose marriage is dissolved or
declared invalid, the court shall order her maiden name or a
former name restored.
    (d) A judgment of dissolution of marriage or legal
separation, if made, shall be awarded to both of the parties,
and shall provide that it affects the status previously
existing between the parties in the manner adjudged.
