Illinois House Bill 2186 will amend the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act.  The bill changes the definition of “relocation”.  It is revised to mean a change of residence from the child’s current primary residence to a new residence within this State.

It will no longer be a location in a specific county within in this State that is more than 50 miles (rather than 25 miles) from the child’s current residence.   Or a change of residence from the child’s current primary residence to a residence outside the borders of this State that is more than 50 miles (rather than 25 miles) from the current primary residence.
