Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act. Excludes from the definition of "abuse" obtaining, seeking, or facilitating lawful health care for a minor child by a parent or person in loco parentis. Requires the court to consider in determining parental responsibilities and parenting time a parent's affirmation of the child's gender identity or gender expression in a way that promotes the child's overall health and well-being, including accessing lawful health care. Allows a court to modify an order restricting parental responsibilities if it finds persistent, continuing interference with the child's ability to access lawful health care. Declares it to it is against the public policy of this State and shall not be enforced if a law of another state authorizes the removal of a child from the parent or acting as a parent for allowing a child to receive lawful health care. Amends the Uniform Child-Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. Provides that the presence of a child in this State for the purpose of obtaining lawful health care is sufficient to meet the jurisdiction of this State for an initial child custody determination for temporary emergency matters. Provides that this State is not an inconvenient forum if lawful health care to the child is at issue in which the law or policy of the other state that may take jurisdiction limits the ability of a parent or person acting as a parent to obtain lawful health care for the child. Effective immediately.
