CHILD SUPPORT-WORK-RESIDENCE                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code, the  Illinois  Marriage  and      
   Dissolution  of  Marriage  Act, the Non-Support of Spouse and Children      
   Act, the Revised Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of  Support  Act,  and      
   the  Illinois  Parentage  Act  of  1984. Provides that a child support      
   order shall include a provision requiring the obligor to report to the      
   obligee each time the obligor obtains new employment and each time the      
   obligor's employment is terminated  for  any  reason.  Failure  to  so      
   report  is  indirect  criminal  contempt,  with  bond  for any obligor      
   arrested for failure to report new employment being set in the  amount      
   of  the  child support that should have been paid during the period of      
   unreported employment.   Provides  the  order  shall  also  include  a      
   provision  requiring  that  both the obligor and obligee parent advise      
   each other of a change in residence within 5 days of the change.            
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          There may be an increase in judicial workloads; it is not pos-       
          sible to determine impact on the number of judges needed.            
          FISCAL NOTE (Dpt. Public Aid)                                        
          No additional administrative expenditures from SB368.                
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (DCCA)                                    
          SB368 fails to create a State mandate.                               
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          SB 368 does not preempt home rule authority.                         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that in addition to reporting to the obligee the obligor      
   must report to the clerk of the court and that the report must be made      
   within 10 days and be in writing, including the name  and  address  of      
   the  new  employer.  Provides that failure to report new employment or      
   termination of employment is  indirect  criminal  contempt  if  it  is      
   coupled with nonpayment of support for a period in excess of 60 days.       
        GOVERNOR'S AMENDATORY VETO MESSAGE                                     
        Recommends that the provision requiring each party to report to        
   the other within 5 days of a change of address be amended to provide        
   an exception when the court finds that the physical, mental, or emo-        
   tional health of a party or that of a minor child, or both, would be        
   seriously endangered by the disclosure of the party's address.
