A federal judge signed an order Dec. 16 that said same-sex couples wherein a partner faces a serious medical complication can marry ahead of the scheduled June 1 start date when marriage equality takes effect in Illinois.

Forms were expected to be available from the Cook County Clerk's Office by the afternoon of Dec. 16.
