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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 40, par. 704)
Public Aid Provisions.) Except as provided in Sections 709
through 712, if maintenance, child support or
both, is awarded to persons who are recipients of aid under "The
Illinois Public Aid Code", the court shall direct the husband or wife,
as the case may be, to make the payments to (1) the Department
of Healthcare and Family Services if the persons are recipients under Articles III, IV or V
of the Code, or (2) the local governmental unit responsible for their
support if they are recipients under Article VI or VII of the Code. The
order shall permit the Department of Healthcare and Family Services or the local
governmental unit, as the case may be, to direct that subsequent
payments be made directly to the former spouse, the children, or both,
or to some person or agency in their behalf, upon removal of the former
spouse or children from the public aid rolls; and upon such direction
and removal of the recipients from the public aid rolls, the
Department or local governmental unit, as the case requires, shall give
written notice of such action to the court.
