Effective June 29, 2018: New Law Aims At Protecting Kids From Domestic Violence
Domestic violence orders of protection
Public Act 100-597 amends the Code of Criminal Procedure by authorizing the state's attorney to file a petition for a domestic violence order of protection or stalking no contact order on behalf of any minor child or dependent adult who is a family or household member of the named victim, if the named victim does not file a petition or request the State's Attorney file the petition. The alleged perpetrator must file a written notice including a "meritorious" defense, and if hearing evidence establishes such a defense by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not), the court may decide not to issue a protective order.
