Short description: 
CHILD SUPPORT-MARRIAGE LICENSE                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Marriage and  Dissolution  of  Marriage  Act.      
   Provides  that  a  marriage license application form shall ask whether      
   either party to the proposed marriage  owes  delinquent  court-ordered      
   child  support.   If  so,  or  if  either  party refuses to answer the      
   question, no marriage license shall  be  issued.   Provides  that  the      
   county  clerk  shall  provide  a  document  prepared  by  the Illinois      
   Department of Public  Aid  explaining  delinquent  child  support  and      
   penalties  for  a  false  response to the question.  Provides that the      
   Department of Public Aid and the circuit clerk  may  compare  marriage      
   license  applications  to  their records and if a discrepancy is found      
   may report the apparent  violation  of  the  law  to  the  appropriate      
   authorities.   Submitting a false answer to a question on the marriage      
   license application  form  regarding  delinquent  court-ordered  child      
   support is a Class A misdemeanor.
