Is there a statute of limitation for filing a judgment nunc pro tunc in texas?

The court may make a judgment nunc pro tunc at any time but may only correct clerical errors made in entering the judgment. For example, if a trial the judge renders a decision stating how your property will be divided, and she states from the bench that a specific Ford F-150 truck is awarded to husband, then everyone signs off on a final decree stating that the Ford F-250 is awarded to husband, the Court could issue a judgment nunc pro tunc to change Ford F-250 to Ford F-150 in a nunc pro tunc decree. The Court may not, however, issue a judgment nunc pro tunc awarding the F-150 to the wife. That would not be a valid nunc pro tunc. If you signed a final decree that stated the house was awarded to husband, the court may not change that award by doing a nunc pro tunc unless the court had previously rendered a decision that the house was awarded to you. Forgive me if I misunderstood your question.
