(from Ch. 40, par. 507)
Payment of maintenance or support to court.
(a) In actions instituted under this Act, the court shall order that
maintenance and support payments be made to the clerk of court as trustee for
remittance to the person entitled to receive the payments. However, the court
in its discretion may direct otherwise where circumstances so warrant.
(b) The clerk of court shall maintain records listing the amount of
payments, the date payments are required to be made and the names and
addresses of the parties affected by the order. For those cases in which
support is payable to the clerk of the circuit court for transmittal to
the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Illinois Department of Public Aid) by order of the court or upon
notification of the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly
Illinois Department of Public Aid), and the
Department collects support by assignment, offset, withholding,
deduction or other process permitted by law, the Department shall
notify the clerk of the date and amount of such collection. Upon notification,
the clerk shall record the collection on the payment record for the case.
(c) The parties affected by the order shall inform the clerk of
court of any change of address or of other condition that may affect the
administration of the order.
(d) The provisions of this Section shall not apply to cases that come
under the provisions of Sections 709 through 712.
(e) To the extent the provisions of this Section are inconsistent with the
requirements pertaining to the State Disbursement Unit under Section 507.1 of
this Act and Section 10-26 of the Illinois Public Aid Code, the requirements
pertaining to the State Disbursement Unit shall apply.
