is there a time frame to correct a clerical error on a judgment that was signed by the court in NJ?
The answer appears in the Court;s rules:
1:13-1. Clerical Mistakes
Clerical mistakes in judgments, orders or other parts of the record and errors therein arising from oversight and omission may at any time be corrected by the court on its own initiative or on the motion of any party, and on such notice and terms as the court directs, notwithstanding the pendency of an appeal.
I agree with counsel regarding R. 1:13-1. It can be changed at anytime. However, make sure it's actually a clerical error. You may want to show it to an attorney. Avvo has a great database of attorneys. Good Luck.
