Short description: 
CHLD SUPPORT-CONT'D OBLIGATION                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code, the  Illinois  Marriage  and      
   Dissolution  of  Marriage Act, the Non-Support Punishment Act, and the      
   Illinois Parentage Act of 1984 to provide that if there is  an  unpaid      
   child  support  arrearage or delinquency equal to at least one month's      
   support obligation on the support order's termination date,  then  the      
   periodic  amount  required to be paid for current support of the child      
   immediately before that date shall automatically  continue  to  be  an      
   obligation,  not  as  current  support but as periodic payments toward      
   satisfaction of the unpaid arrearage or  delinquency.   Provides  that      
   these  periodic  payments shall be in addition to any periodic payment      
   previously required for satisfaction of the arrearage or  delinquency.      
   Also  amends the Illinois Public Aid Code to add provisions concerning      
   the termination date of an order for support and to remove  provisions      
   concerning   (i)   an  obligor's  report  of  new  employment  or  the      
   termination of employment and (ii) a one-time charge on the amount  of      
   past-due  child  support  owed  on  July  1,  1988.  Amends the Income      
   Withholding for  Support  Act  to  add  provisions  concerning  income      
   withholding for an unpaid child support arrearage or delinquency after      
   the  current  support  obligation terminates. Amends the Code of Civil      
   Procedure  to  authorize  private  process  servers  in  counties   of      
   1,000,000 or more in cases in which a party is receiving child support      
   enforcement services from the Department of Public Aid. The changes to      
   the  Code of Civil Procedure are effective July 1, 2002; the remaining      
   changes are effective January 1, 2003.
