Just FYI. I have watched over the recent years from afar as corrupt forces in ILL-n-noise basically pulled out all the stops to maintain the status quo. Toward the end, a video was produced where numerous Senators argued fererishly against children of divorce maintaining a relationship with their father. I have no idea of the comprises that were made to get this far but many people from all walks of life had come forward to expose the raw injustices in the plight of a young father that ignited this cause of action :
“The Steve Watkins Bill” is named in honor of a loving father: “Steve Watkins” who was brutally murdered (by the maternal grandmother) while attempting to pick up his daughter to exercise his Court Ordered Parenting Time (visitation )with her. The Steve Watkins Bill creates mandated sanctions for parents who intentionally interfere or deny parenting time to the other parent! This bill has been passed by a resounding margin in both the Illinois State Senate and Illinois State House of Representatives, and has been submitted to Governor for his signature / approval.
