Short description: 
CUSTODY-TEMP SUPRVISD VISITATN                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Marriage and  Dissolution  of  Marriage  Act.      
   Provides that a court may not restrict a parent's visitation rights         
   unless it finds that the visitation would "endanger" (now, "endanger        
   seriously") the child's health. Provides that the court may enter an        
   order for temporary supervised visitation if the court finds, after  a      
   hearing,  that it is in the best interest of the child.  Provides that      
   the temporary supervised visitation order shall  last  from  6  to  18      
   months,  may  include  an  order that the non-custodial parent receive      
   treatment or take other corrective measures,  and  shall  be  reviewed      
   upon  its  expiration, at  which  time  the  court shall enter another      
   temporary supervised visitation order or a permanent visitation  order      
   or terminate visitation.  Changes the provision denying visitation for      
   a  person  convicted  of  any  offense  involving  an  illegal sex act      
   perpetrated upon a victim less than 18 years of age while that  person      
   is  incarcerated  or  in  various stages of criminal supervision after      
   incarceration and until that person receives treatment  after  release      
   to  include those convicted of a violent felony and those convicted of      
   a sex offense against a person of any age.  Provides that if the court      
   finds that a person has chronically failed to comply with a visitation      
   order, the court shall revoke the visitation rights granted if  it  is      
   in the best interest of the minor child.
