Notably, the Court similarly rejected Borrower's assertion that the waiver of service of process in the forbearance agreement operated only prospectively and thus could not serve to validate the prior default judgment in the foreclosure action. In so doing, the Court observed that a waiver of objections to jurisdiction operates both retroactively as well as prospectively. See GMB Fin. Group, Inc. V. Marzano, 385 Ill. App. 3d 978 (2008)(analyzing amended section 2-301 of the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure, titled "Objections to jurisdiction over the person" and ruling that under that section once a party has waived jurisdiction, the waiver operates both prospectively as well as retroactively).
