If the judge or commissioner grants the motion to correct the clerical mistake, the court's order may require one of the parties to prepare a corrected order and to title it "Nunc Pro Tunc Corrected Order."
The corrected order must be titled this way (if ordered) so that the corrected order is effective as of the date of the original order.
The party responsible for preparing the corrected order should send it to the other party for review and approval before submitting it to the court for the judge to sign. The corrected order should be identical to the original order, except for the part(s) the judge has ordered to be corrected.
Will the motion be decided by a judge or commissioner?
Judges may rule on all motions in all types of cases. However, in Judicial Districts 1, 2, 3 and 4, commissioners are assigned to hear most matters in divorce cases and several other types of family law cases. Motions decided by a judge and motions decided by a commissioner follow different procedures.
If you are not sure whether your case is assigned to a judge or commissioner, find out. Call the court, or look at the caption of the complaint or petition. If a commissioner's name has been listed in the caption, the motion will probably be decided by a commissioner.
Motions decided by a judge are governed by URCP 7.
A judge will not rule on a motion until the time for filing an opposition to the motion has expired and a Request to Submit for Decision has been filed.
Motions decided by a commissioner are governed by URCP 101.
See our Motions web page for more information about the difference in procedures and timelines depending on who is deciding the motion.
