House Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes reference to:
735 ILCS 5/1-101
Adds reference to:
735 ILCS 5/2-301from Ch. 110, par. 2-301

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Code of Civil Procedure. Provides that a party filing any other pleading or motion prior to the filing of a motion objecting to a court's jurisdiction over the party's person waives all objections to the court's jurisdiction over the party's person, both prospectively and retroactively, unless the initial motion filed is: (i) a motion for an extension of time to answer or otherwise plead or (ii) a motion requesting a judgment, relief from a judgment, or relief from a default judgment. Provides that any motion objecting to a court's jurisdiction over the party's person shall be filed within 60 days of the court's order disposing of an initial motion requesting a judgment, relief from a judgment, or relief from a default judgment. Provides that nothing precludes a party from filing a motion objecting to a court's jurisdiction over the party's person combined with a motion requesting a judgment, relief from a judgment, or relief from a default judgment; and that if such a combined motion is filed, any objection to the court's jurisdiction over the party's person is not waived.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Provides that a party filing any other pleading or motion prior to the filing of a motion objecting to a court's jurisdiction over the party's person waives all objections to the court's jurisdiction over the party's person prospectively (rather than both prospectively and retroactively as set forth in House Amendment No. 2) unless the initial motion filed is a motion for an extension of time to answer or otherwise plead or a motion requesting a judgment, relief from a judgment, or relief from a default judgment.
