DISSOLUTION-LEGAL DISABILITY                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Marriage and Dissolution of  Marriage  Act.   Provides      
   that  legal disability, insanity, and incompetence are not defenses to      
   an action for dissolution of marriage  or  legal  separation  that  is      
   brought  on  grounds of irreconcilable differences.  Provides that, if      
   the requirements of the Act are met, a spouse may maintain  an  action      
   seeking a dissolution of marriage or legal separation from a spouse on      
   grounds of irreconcilable differences regardless of whether the spouse      
   from  whom  the  dissolution  or legal separation is sought is under a      
   legal disability. Effective immediately.                                    
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Replaces  amendatory  language  in  the  bill  with  a  provision      
   itemizing those  conditions related to mental illness which shall  not      
   constitute  a  defense  to  the  grounds of irreconcilable differences      
   alleged in a petition for dissolution of marriage or legal separation.
