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.

20 ILCS 1805/30.25

    (20 ILCS 1805/30.25)
    Sec. 30.25. Stay of prosecution. During and for a period of 14 days after a period of military service in excess of 29 days, a court having jurisdiction over the enforcement of any civil obligation or liability, the prosecution of any civil suit or proceeding, or the entry or enforcement of any civil order, writ, judgment, or decree may stay, postpone, or suspend the matter if the court determines that a service member's failure to meet the obligation is the direct result of that period of military service. The stay, postponement, or suspension of proceedings does not in any way modify any condition, obligation, term, or liability agreed upon or incurred by a person in military service including but not limited to accrued interest, late fees, or penalties. No stay, postponement, or suspension shall be provided regarding any written agreement entered into, or debt that is incurred, by the person during or after his or her period of military service. A violation of this Section constitutes a civil rights violation under the Illinois Human Rights Act. All proceeds from the collection of any civil penalty imposed under this Section shall be deposited into the Illinois Military Family Relief Fund.
