Laws that Protect Against Domestic Violence in Illinois
The Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986 and the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act both address domestic violence issues. According to the Domestic Violence Act, abuse includes physical and nonphysical abusive actions such as harassment, intimidation, willful deprivation, and exercising control over a person’s will. To be considered domestic violence, the abuse must be committed by a family or household member–including spouses, parents, those who have children in common, or have been or are in a dating or engagement relationship. These considerations apply to those involved in both domestic violence and order of protection proceedings. However, a restraining order can ban harassing conduct and physical contact by those that do not meet the consideration guidelines for domestic violence and order of protection.
Responding to Domestic Violence Claims
Domestic violence cases are often connected to family law issues such as divorce, parentage, and child custody because domestic violence claims and convictions may impact access to children and residences. A protective order can prohibit the alleged abuser from communicating with or being in close proximity to the petitioning party and/or minor children, as well as prohibit the alleged abuse from being in proximity to the petitioning party and/or that person's residence and work. The petitioning party can also require police presence if the alleged abuser wishes to secure personal belongings from the home. When we respond to a domestic violence claim, we quickly do what is necessary to protect the involved parties. We advise our clients on emergency, interim, and plenary orders of protection and inform them about domestic violence and stalking laws.
