Illinois' dog bite law requires the injured party to be lawfully on the property they occupied during the attack. If a person is illegally on private property and is attacked by a dog, the owner may not be held liable for the injuries. #dogbite, #Illinoisdogbitelaw,

If a child is born out of wedlock,there are three ways to establish paternity:
Both parents complete, sign, and have a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP) form witnessed and filed with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services.
An Administrative Paternity Order is established and entered by HFS' Child Support Services.
An Order of Paternity is established and entered in court judicially.
An easy way for parents to establish paternity is to complete a VAP form at the hospital
when the child is born. Parents can ask hospital staff for a VAP when providing information for the child’s birth certificate. Hospital staff can help parents complete this form.
