On January 1, 2016, the Illinois Parentage Act of 2015 became law. Among the many changes affecting Illinois families, the Act (an update of the original, 1984 Act) now provides gender-neutral definitions of parenting - enhancing the rights of Illinois' LGBTQ parents.
Other changes include laws relating to genetic testing, paternity, and divorce.
