The Illinois Association of Professional Process Servers (ILAPPS) has identified three pieces of legislation which could affect process servers in Illinois.

The three bills are as follows:

House Bill 488

This bill was introduced on January 30th and passed the House on March 12th.

House Bill 488 amends the Private Detective, Private Alarm, Private Security, Fingerprint Vendor, and Locksmith Act of 2004. Under this bill a licensee, interested party, or injured party successfully obtaining injunctive relief against an individual practicing without a license shall be awarded attorney’s fees and costs.

House Bill 3161

Introduced on February 25th, the bill had its first reading on February 25th and has been assigned to the Judiciary Civil Committee.

The change in this bill would mean that in counties with a population over 3,000,000 a special process server may not be appointed if the order of protection grants the surrender of a child, the surrender of a firearm or firearm owners identification card, or the exclusive possession of a shared residence.

Senate Bill 0863

Senate Bill 0863 introduced on February 11th and has been referred to assignments with some amendments to the rule in the Senate.

This is a copy of HB 488 and would have the same effect regarding a licensee, interested party, or injured party successfully obtaining injunctive relief against an individual practicing without a license shall be awarded attorney’s fees and costs.
