No legal relationship between paternity and registry
, August 2007
The Illinois Supreme Court recently held that the Putative Father Registry provisions of the Adoption Act and the Parentage Act are to be construed separately, and therefore, a father seeking to establish a parent-child relationship under the Parentage Act was not required to first register as a putative father within 30 days of the child’s birth pursuant to the Putative Father Registry provisions of the Adoption Act. J.S.A. et al., v. M.H. et al., 2007 WL 289829 (2007).
