Legal Tangles Several years ago, the Illinois di* vorce law was amended to :forbid the marriage in the state of divorced per= sons within a year after the divorce. The result was that these persons married outside Illinois, and on their return to live in the state frequent- ly escaped prosecution because no- body was interested. In other case either party wearying of the alliance sought annulment on the grounds of , :: i illegality. The result ws that nu- merous children born of such alli- ances were bereft of names. Legitimate Children The two laws recently going into effect, were aimed at both situations. one statute provides timt children born of marriages having the form of legality are legitimate, even though those marriages .are annulled. The other law removes the year't restriction on remarriage in the u- ', ture, and was made retroactive validate all remarriages of persons  divorced under the former law. s a result there has pede to the marriage license bureau during the week of persons divorced within 'the year and wishing to mar- ry. The law eliminating the year's btm on marriage was fostered by Superice Judge Timothy D.
