    (a) The Supreme Court may implement a program to issue a Hope Card to the petitioner of a plenary order of protection for the petitioner to distribute to any individual who may need to be aware of the order. The Supreme Court may work with other governmental agencies, including the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, and circuit court clerks, to implement the program.

        (1) be laminated and wallet-sized; and
        (2) contain identifying information about the
respondent of a plenary order of protection, including a photograph, the active dates of the order, the case number, and any other pertinent information contained in the order.
    A Hope Card shall have the same effect as the underlying plenary order of protection.
    (c) The program may provide for the issuance of a temporary Hope Card at the time of the entry of the plenary order of protection.
    (d) The first 3 Hope Cards per protected party issued to a petitioner shall be free. The Supreme Court may establish a fee for any additional Hope Card, not to exceed $5 per Hope Card.
