Bill Title: Amends the Probate Act of 1975. Provides that for purposes of determining the rights to property passing upon the death of a decedent under any instrument or the intestacy rules of this State, unless a contrary intention is expressly stated in the instrument: (1) the decedent is a parent of a posthumous child in utero at the time of the decedent's death; and (2) if a decedent had consented in writing to be a parent of any child born of his or her gametes posthumously, and died before the insemination of the individual's gametes or embryo transfer, the decedent is a parent of any resulting child born within 36 months of the death of the decedent, but only if the holder of property subject to the instrument receives timely written notice, from a person to whom such consent applies that: (i) the decedent's gametes exist; and (ii) the person has the intent to use the gametes in a manner that could result in a child being born within 36 months of the death of the decedent. Provides that if the holder of the property does not receive the written notice, the holder of the property shall not be liable to the posthumously conceived child or any person claiming for or through the child for any property passing upon the death of the decedent. Contains applicability language.
