Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
(725 ILCS 5/) Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963.

725 ILCS 5/112A-17.5

    (725 ILCS 5/112A-17.5)
    Sec. 112A-17.5. Ex parte protective orders.
    (a) The petitioner may request expedited consideration of the petition for an ex parte protective order. The court shall consider the request on an expedited basis without requiring the respondent's presence or requiring notice to the respondent.
    (b) Issuance of ex parte protective orders in cases involving domestic violence. An ex parte domestic violence order of protection shall be issued if petitioner satisfies the requirements of this subsection (b) for one or more of the requested remedies. For each remedy requested, petitioner shall establish that:
        (1) the court has jurisdiction under Section 112A-9
    
of this Code;
        (2) the requirements of subsection (a) of Section
    
112A-11.5 of this Code are satisfied; and
        (3) there is good cause to grant the remedy,
    
regardless of prior service of process or notice upon the respondent, because:
            (A) for the remedy of prohibition of abuse
        
described in paragraph (1) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; stay away order and additional prohibitions described in paragraph (3) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; removal or concealment of minor child described in paragraph (8) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; order to appear described in paragraph (9) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; physical care and possession of the minor child described in paragraph (5) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; protection of property described in paragraph (11) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; prohibition of entry described in paragraph (14) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; prohibition of firearm possession described in paragraph (14.5) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; prohibition of access to records described in paragraph (15) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; injunctive relief described in paragraph (16) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; and telephone services described in paragraph (18) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code, the harm which that remedy is intended to prevent would be likely to occur if the respondent were given any prior notice, or greater notice than was actually given, of the petitioner's efforts to obtain judicial relief;
            (B) for the remedy of grant of exclusive
        
possession of residence described in paragraph (2) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; the immediate danger of further abuse of the petitioner by the respondent, if the petitioner chooses or had chosen to remain in the residence or household while the respondent was given any prior notice or greater notice than was actually given of the petitioner's efforts to obtain judicial relief outweighs the hardships to the respondent of an emergency order granting the petitioner exclusive possession of the residence or household; and the remedy shall not be denied because the petitioner has or could obtain temporary shelter elsewhere while prior notice is given to the respondent, unless the hardship to the respondent from exclusion from the home substantially outweigh the hardship to the petitioner; or
            (C) for the remedy of possession of personal
        
property described in paragraph (10) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code; improper disposition of the personal property would be likely to occur if the respondent were given any prior notice, or greater notice than was actually given, of the petitioner's efforts to obtain judicial relief or the petitioner has an immediate and pressing need for the possession of that property.
    An ex parte domestic violence order of protection may not include the counseling, custody, or payment of support or monetary compensation remedies provided by paragraphs (4), (12), (13), and (16) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code.
    (c) Issuance of ex parte civil no contact order in cases involving sexual offenses. An ex parte civil no contact order shall be issued if the petitioner establishes that:
        (1) the court has jurisdiction under Section 112A-9
    
of this Code;
        (2) the requirements of subsection (a) of Section
    
112A-11.5 of this Code are satisfied; and
        (3) there is good cause to grant the remedy,
    
regardless of prior service of process or of notice upon the respondent, because the harm which that remedy is intended to prevent would be likely to occur if the respondent were given any prior notice, or greater notice than was actually given, of the petitioner's efforts to obtain judicial relief.
    The court may order any of the remedies under Section 112A-14.5 of this Code.
    (d) Issuance of ex parte stalking no contact order in cases involving stalking offenses. An ex parte stalking no contact order shall be issued if the petitioner establishes that:
        (1) the court has jurisdiction under Section 112A-9
    
of this Code;
        (2) the requirements of subsection (a) of Section
    
112A-11.5 of this Code are satisfied; and
        (3) there is good cause to grant the remedy,
    
regardless of prior service of process or of notice upon the respondent, because the harm which that remedy is intended to prevent would be likely to occur if the respondent were given any prior notice, or greater notice than was actually given, of the petitioner's efforts to obtain judicial relief.
    The court may order any of the remedies under Section 112A-14.7 of this Code.
    (e) Issuance of ex parte protective orders on court holidays and evenings.
    When the court is unavailable at the close of business, the petitioner may file a petition for an ex parte protective order before any available circuit judge or associate judge who may grant relief under this Article. If the judge finds that petitioner has satisfied the prerequisites in subsection (b), (c), or (d) of this Section, the judge shall issue an ex parte protective order.
    The chief judge of the circuit court may designate for each county in the circuit at least one judge to be reasonably available to issue orally, by telephone, by facsimile, or otherwise, an ex parte protective order at all times, whether or not the court is in session.
    The judge who issued the order under this Section shall promptly communicate or convey the order to the sheriff to facilitate the entry of the order into the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System by the Illinois State Police under Section 112A-28 of this Code. Any order issued under this Section and any documentation in support of it shall be certified on the next court day to the appropriate court. The clerk of that court shall immediately assign a case number, file the petition, order, and other documents with the court and enter the order of record and file it with the sheriff for service under subsection (f) of this Section. Failure to comply with the requirements of this subsection (e) shall not affect the validity of the order.
    (f) Service of ex parte protective order on respondent.
        (1) If an ex parte protective order is entered at the
    
time a summons or arrest warrant is issued for the criminal charge, the petition for the protective order, any supporting affidavits, if any, and the ex parte protective order that has been issued shall be served with the summons or arrest warrant. The enforcement of a protective order under Section 112A-23 of this Code shall not be affected by the lack of service or delivery, provided the requirements of subsection (a) of Section 112A-23 of this Code are otherwise met.
        (2) If an ex parte protective order is entered after
    
a summons or arrest warrant is issued and before the respondent makes an initial appearance in the criminal case, the summons shall be in the form prescribed by subsection (d) of Supreme Court Rule 101, except that it shall require respondent to answer or appear within 7 days and shall be accompanied by the petition for the protective order, any supporting affidavits, if any, and the ex parte protective order that has been issued.
        (3) If an ex parte protective order is entered after
    
the respondent has been served notice of a petition for a final protective order and the respondent has requested a continuance to respond to the petition, the ex parte protective order shall be served: (A) in open court if the respondent is present at the proceeding at which the order was entered; or (B) by summons in the form prescribed by subsection (d) of Supreme Court Rule 101.
        (4) No fee shall be charged for service of summons.
        (5) The summons shall be served by the sheriff or
    
other law enforcement officer at the earliest time and shall take precedence over other summonses except those of a similar emergency nature. Special process servers may be appointed at any time, and their designation shall not affect the responsibilities and authority of the sheriff or other official process servers. In a county with a population over 3,000,000, a special process server may not be appointed if an ex parte protective order grants the surrender of a child, the surrender of a firearm or Firearm Owner's Identification Card, or the exclusive possession of a shared residence. Process may be served in court.
    (g) Upon 7 days' notice to the petitioner, or a shorter notice period as the court may prescribe, a respondent subject to an ex parte protective order may appear and petition the court to re-hear the petition. Any petition to re-hear shall be verified and shall allege the following:
        (1) that respondent did not receive prior notice of
    
the initial hearing in which the ex parte protective order was entered under Section 112A-17.5 of this Code; and
        (2) that respondent had a meritorious defense to the
    
order or any of its remedies or that the order or any of its remedies was not authorized under this Article.
    The verified petition and affidavit shall set forth the evidence of the meritorious defense that will be presented at a hearing. If the court finds that the evidence presented at the hearing on the petition establishes a meritorious defense by a preponderance of the evidence, the court may decide to vacate the protective order or modify the remedies.
    (h) If the ex parte protective order granted petitioner exclusive possession of the residence and the petition of respondent seeks to re-open or vacate that grant, the court shall set a date for hearing within 14 days on all issues relating to exclusive possession. Under no circumstances shall a court continue a hearing concerning exclusive possession beyond the 14th day except by agreement of the petitioner and the respondent. Other issues raised by the pleadings may be consolidated for the hearing if the petitioner, the respondent, and the court do not object.
    (i) Duration of ex parte protective order. An ex parte order shall remain in effect until the court considers the request for a final protective order after notice has been served on the respondent or a default final protective order is entered, whichever occurs first. If a court date is scheduled for the issuance of a default protective order and the petitioner fails to personally appear or appear through counsel or the prosecuting attorney, the petition shall be dismissed and the ex parte order terminated.

    (Text of Section from P.A. 102-184)
    Sec. 112A-20. Duration and extension of final protective orders.
    (a) (Blank).
    (b) A final protective order shall remain in effect as follows:
        (1) if entered during pre-trial release, until
    
disposition, withdrawal, or dismissal of the underlying charge; if, however, the case is continued as an independent cause of action, the order's duration may be for a fixed period of time not to exceed 2 years;
        (2) if in effect in conjunction with a bond
    
forfeiture warrant, until final disposition or an additional period of time not exceeding 2 years; no domestic violence order of protection, however, shall be terminated by a dismissal that is accompanied by the issuance of a bond forfeiture warrant;
        (3) until 2 years after the expiration of any
    
supervision, conditional discharge, probation, periodic imprisonment, parole, aftercare release, or mandatory supervised release for domestic violence orders of protection and civil no contact orders;
        (4) until 2 years after the date set by the court for
    
expiration of any sentence of imprisonment and subsequent parole, aftercare release, or mandatory supervised release for domestic violence orders of protection and civil no contact orders;
        (5) permanent for a stalking no contact order if a
    
judgment of conviction for stalking is entered; or
        (6) permanent for a civil no contact order at the
    
victim's request if a judgment of conviction for criminal sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual abuse, excluding a conviction under subsection (c) of Section 11-1.50 of the Criminal Code of 2012, or aggravated criminal sexual abuse is entered.
    (c) Computation of time. The duration of a domestic violence order of protection shall not be reduced by the duration of any prior domestic violence order of protection.
    (d) Law enforcement records. When a protective order expires upon the occurrence of a specified event, rather than upon a specified date as provided in subsection (b), no expiration date shall be entered in Department of State Police records. To remove the protective order from those records, either the petitioner or the respondent shall request the clerk of the court to file a certified copy of an order stating that the specified event has occurred or that the protective order has been vacated or modified with the sheriff, and the sheriff shall direct that law enforcement records shall be promptly corrected in accordance with the filed order.
    (e) Extension of Orders. Any domestic violence order of protection or civil no contact order that expires 2 years after the expiration of the defendant's sentence under paragraph (2), (3), or (4) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-20 of this Article may be extended one or more times, as required. The petitioner, petitioner's counsel, or the State's Attorney on the petitioner's behalf shall file the motion for an extension of the final protective order in the criminal case and serve the motion in accordance with Supreme Court Rules 11 and 12. The court shall transfer the motion to the appropriate court or division for consideration under subsection (e) of Section 220 of the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986, subsection (c) of Section 216 of the Civil No Contact Order Act, or subsection (c) of Section 105 of the Stalking No Contact Order as appropriate.
    (f) Termination date. Any final protective order which would expire on a court holiday shall instead expire at the close of the next court business day.
    (g) Statement of purpose. The practice of dismissing or suspending a criminal prosecution in exchange for issuing a protective order undermines the purposes of this Article. This Section shall not be construed as encouraging that practice.

    Sec. 112A-22. Notice of orders.
    (a) Entry and issuance. Upon issuance of any protective order, the clerk shall immediately, or on the next court day if an ex parte order is issued under subsection (e) of Section 112A-17.5 of this Code, (i) enter the order on the record and file it in accordance with the circuit court procedures and (ii) provide a file stamped copy of the order to respondent and to petitioner, if present, and to the State's Attorney. If the victim is not present the State's Attorney shall (i) as soon as practicable notify the petitioner the order has been entered and (ii) provide a file stamped copy of the order to the petitioner within 3 days.
    (b) Filing with sheriff. The clerk of the issuing judge shall, on the same day that a protective order is issued, file a copy of that order with the sheriff or other law enforcement officials charged with maintaining Illinois State Police records or charged with serving the order upon respondent. If the order was issued under subsection (e) of Section 112A-17.5 of this Code, the clerk on the next court day shall file a certified copy of the order with the sheriff or other law enforcement officials charged with maintaining Illinois State Police records.
    (c) (Blank).
    (c-2) Service by sheriff. Unless respondent was present in court when the order was issued, the sheriff, other law enforcement official, or special process server shall promptly serve that order upon respondent and file proof of the service, in the manner provided for service of process in civil proceedings. Instead of serving the order upon the respondent; however, the sheriff, other law enforcement official, special process server, or other persons defined in Section 112A-22.1 of this Code may serve the respondent with a short form notification as provided in Section 112A-22.1 of this Code. If process has not yet been served upon the respondent, process shall be served with the order or short form notification if the service is made by the sheriff, other law enforcement official, or special process server.
    (c-3) If the person against whom the protective order is issued is arrested and the written order is issued under subsection (e) of Section 112A-17.5 of this Code and received by the custodial law enforcement agency before the respondent or arrestee is released from custody, the custodial law enforcement agency shall promptly serve the order upon the respondent or arrestee before the respondent or arrestee is released from custody. In no event shall detention of the respondent or arrestee be extended for a hearing on the petition for protective order or receipt of the order issued under Section 112A-17 of this Code.
    (c-4) Extensions, modifications, and revocations. Any order extending, modifying, or revoking any protective order shall be promptly recorded, issued, and served as provided in this Section.

    (d) (Blank).
    (e) Notice to health care facilities and health care practitioners. Upon the request of the petitioner, the clerk of the circuit court shall send a certified copy of the protective order to any specified health care facility or health care practitioner requested by the petitioner at the mailing address provided by the petitioner.
    (f) Disclosure by health care facilities and health care practitioners. After receiving a certified copy of a protective order that prohibits a respondent's access to records, no health care facility or health care practitioner shall allow a respondent access to the records of any child who is a protected person under the protective order, or release information in those records to the respondent, unless the order has expired or the respondent shows a certified copy of the court order vacating the corresponding protective order that was sent to the health care facility or practitioner. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to require health care facilities or health care practitioners to alter procedures related to billing and payment. The health care facility or health care practitioner may file the copy of the protective order in the records of a child who is a protected person under the protective order, or may employ any other method to identify the records to which a respondent is prohibited access. No health care facility or health care practitioner shall be civilly or professionally liable for reliance on a copy of a protective order, except for willful and wanton misconduct.
    (g) Notice to schools. Upon the request of the petitioner, within 24 hours of the issuance of a protective order, the clerk of the issuing judge shall send a certified copy of the protective order to the day-care facility, pre-school or pre-kindergarten, or private school or the principal office of the public school district or any college or university in which any child who is a protected person under the protective order or any child of the petitioner is enrolled as requested by the petitioner at the mailing address provided by the petitioner. If the child transfers enrollment to another day-care facility, pre-school, pre-kindergarten, private school, public school, college, or university, the petitioner may, within 24 hours of the transfer, send to the clerk written notice of the transfer, including the name and address of the institution to which the child is transferring. Within 24 hours of receipt of notice from the petitioner that a child is transferring to another day-care facility, pre-school, pre-kindergarten, private school, public school, college, or university, the clerk shall send a certified copy of the order to the institution to which the child is transferring.
    (h) Disclosure by schools. After receiving a certified copy of a protective order that prohibits a respondent's access to records, neither a day-care facility, pre-school, pre-kindergarten, public or private school, college, or university nor its employees shall allow a respondent access to a protected child's records or release information in those records to the respondent.

    (Text of Section from P.A. 101-652)
    Sec. 112A-23. Enforcement of protective orders.
    (a) When violation is crime. A violation of any protective order, whether issued in a civil, quasi-criminal proceeding, shall be enforced by a criminal court when:
        (1) The respondent commits the crime of violation of
    
a domestic violence order of protection pursuant to Section 12-3.4 or 12-30 of the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012, by having knowingly violated:
            (i) remedies described in paragraphs (1), (2),
        
(3), (14), or (14.5) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code,
            (ii) a remedy, which is substantially similar to
        
the remedies authorized under paragraphs (1), (2), (3), (14), or (14.5) of subsection (b) of Section 214 of the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986, in a valid order of protection, which is authorized under the laws of another state, tribe or United States territory, or
            (iii) any other remedy when the act constitutes a
        
crime against the protected parties as defined by the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012.
        Prosecution for a violation of a domestic violence
    
order of protection shall not bar concurrent prosecution for any other crime, including any crime that may have been committed at the time of the violation of the domestic violence order of protection; or
        (2) The respondent commits the crime of child
    
abduction pursuant to Section 10-5 of the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012, by having knowingly violated:
            (i) remedies described in paragraphs (5), (6), or
        
(8) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code, or
            (ii) a remedy, which is substantially similar to
        
the remedies authorized under paragraphs (1), (5), (6), or (8) of subsection (b) of Section 214 of the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986, in a valid domestic violence order of protection, which is authorized under the laws of another state, tribe or United States territory.
        (3) The respondent commits the crime of violation of
    
a civil no contact order when the respondent violates Section 12-3.8 of the Criminal Code of 2012. Prosecution for a violation of a civil no contact order shall not bar concurrent prosecution for any other crime, including any crime that may have been committed at the time of the violation of the civil no contact order.
        (4) The respondent commits the crime of violation of
    
a stalking no contact order when the respondent violates Section 12-3.9 of the Criminal Code of 2012. Prosecution for a violation of a stalking no contact order shall not bar concurrent prosecution for any other crime, including any crime that may have been committed at the time of the violation of the stalking no contact order.
    (b) When violation is contempt of court. A violation of any valid protective order, whether issued in a civil or criminal proceeding, may be enforced through civil or criminal contempt procedures, as appropriate, by any court with jurisdiction, regardless where the act or acts which violated the protective order were committed, to the extent consistent with the venue provisions of this Article. Nothing in this Article shall preclude any Illinois court from enforcing any valid protective order issued in another state. Illinois courts may enforce protective orders through both criminal prosecution and contempt proceedings, unless the action which is second in time is barred by collateral estoppel or the constitutional prohibition against double jeopardy.
        (1) In a contempt proceeding where the petition for a
    
rule to show cause sets forth facts evidencing an immediate danger that the respondent will flee the jurisdiction, conceal a child, or inflict physical abuse on the petitioner or minor children or on dependent adults in petitioner's care, the court may order the attachment of the respondent without prior service of the rule to show cause or the petition for a rule to show cause. Bond shall be set unless specifically denied in writing.
        (2) A petition for a rule to show cause for violation
    
of a protective order shall be treated as an expedited proceeding.
    (c) Violation of custody, allocation of parental responsibility, or support orders.

The court may enforce any order for support issued under paragraph (12) of subsection (b) of Section 112A-14 of this Code in the manner provided for under Parts V and VII of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act.
    (d) Actual knowledge. A protective order may be enforced pursuant to this Section if the respondent violates the order after respondent has actual knowledge of its contents as shown through one of the following means:
        (1) (Blank).
        (2) (Blank).
        (3) By service of a protective order under subsection
    
(f) of Section 112A-17.5 or Section 112A-22 of this Code.
        (4) By other means demonstrating actual knowledge of
    
the contents of the order.

        (1) The existence of a separate, correlative order
    
entered under Section 112A-15 of this Code.
        (2) Any finding or order entered in a conjoined
    
criminal proceeding.
    (f) Circumstances. The court, when determining whether or not a violation of a protective order has occurred, shall not require physical manifestations of abuse on the person of the victim.
    (g) Penalties.
        (1) Except as provided in paragraph (3) of this
    
subsection (g), where the court finds the commission of a crime or contempt of court under subsections (a) or (b) of this Section, the penalty shall be the penalty that generally applies in such criminal or contempt proceedings, and may include one or more of the following: incarceration, payment of restitution, a fine, payment of attorneys' fees and costs, or community service.
        (2) The court shall hear and take into account
    
evidence of any factors in aggravation or mitigation before deciding an appropriate penalty under paragraph (1) of this subsection (g).
        (3) To the extent permitted by law, the court is
    
encouraged to:
            (i) increase the penalty for the knowing
        
violation of any protective order over any penalty previously imposed by any court for respondent's violation of any protective order or penal statute involving petitioner as victim and respondent as defendant;
            (ii) impose a minimum penalty of 24 hours
        
imprisonment for respondent's first violation of any protective order; and
            (iii) impose a minimum penalty of 48 hours
        
imprisonment for respondent's second or subsequent violation of a protective order
    unless the court explicitly finds that an increased
    
penalty or that period of imprisonment would be manifestly unjust.
        (4) In addition to any other penalties imposed for a
    
violation of a protective order, a criminal court may consider evidence of any violations of a protective order:
            (i) to modify the conditions of pretrial release
        
on an underlying criminal charge pursuant to Section 110-6 of this Code;
            (ii) to revoke or modify an order of probation,
        
conditional discharge, or supervision, pursuant to Section 5-6-4 of the Unified Code of Corrections;
            (iii) to revoke or modify a sentence of periodic
        
imprisonment, pursuant to Section 5-7-2 of the Unified Code of Corrections.
