Can I Amend a Motion that has been filed?
2 attorney answers
The motion deadlines are set by statute (see CCP 1005), but late papers can be filed and will not be rejected (CRC 3.1300). The court has discretion about whether to consider them. The papers may not be late if the deadline has not passed, and the court can still consider the papers if that are filed late. Often, parties will file a "notice of errata" to correct mistakes in earlier pleadings. While not specifically approved, this does show that it is not a whole new motion. So go ahead and correct things, and consider an errata if the change is small. If the change is small the court will likely allow it.
