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.

    Sec. 7-706.1. Hearing for compliance with support order.
    (a) An obligor may request in writing to the clerk of the circuit court a hearing to contest the claim of noncompliance with an order of support and his or her subsequent driver's license suspension under subsection (b) of Section 7-702.
    (b) If a written request for a hearing is received by the clerk of the circuit court, the clerk of the circuit court shall set the hearing before the circuit court.
    (c) Upon the obligor's written request, the court must set a date for a hearing and afford the obligor an opportunity for a hearing as early as practical.
    (d) The scope of this hearing is limited to the following issues:
        (1) Whether the obligor is required to pay child
support under an order of support.
        (2) Whether the obligor has been adjudicated in
arrears in court ordered child support payments in an amount equal to 90 days obligation or more.
        (3) Any additional issues raised by the obligor,
including the reasonableness of a payment agreement in light of the obligor's current financial circumstances, to be preserved for appeal.
    (e) All hearings and hearing procedures shall comply with requirements of the Illinois Constitution and the United States Constitution, so that no person is deprived of due process of law nor denied equal protection of the laws. All hearings shall be held before a judge of the circuit court in the county in which the support order has been entered. Appropriate records of the hearings shall be kept. Where a transcript of the hearing is taken, the person requesting the hearing shall have the opportunity to order a copy of the transcript at his or her own expense.
    (f) The action of the circuit court resulting in the suspension of any driver's license shall be a final judgment for purposes of appellate review.
