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. 219.5. Hope Cards.
    (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.
    (b) A Hope Card shall:
        (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.
