Illinois Order of Protection

Followup from my last post:
Recent bill:

Domestic violence orders
House Bill 5121 (Rose, R-Mahomet; Righter, R-Mattoon) requires clerks to send an order of protection to a health-care provider if the petitioner asks them to do so. If a health-care provider receives a copy of an order of protection, they are prohibited from allowing the respondent access to the records of a child who is a protected person under the order. This bill has been passed by both chambers.
