Correcting Clerical Error in Judgment and Amending Money Judgment/Money Award
This set of forms and instructions will allow you to ask the court to correct a clerical error in either the body of your final judgment or the “money judgment/money award” portion of your judgment. These forms may be used in dissolution, separation, modification, custody, parenting time, and/or child support proceedings. However, these forms should ONLY be used where, through oversight or omission, the terms of the court’s orders in the body of the judgment are DIFFERENT FROM those indicated in the “money judgment/money award” portion of the judgment. They cannot be used to introduce new evidence or request something other than what was ordered by the court. These forms may also be used if you are notified by the Division of Child Support that the child or spousal support provisions in the “money judgment” do not match what is ordered for child or spousal support in the body of the judgment.

This packet may be used if you have filed a family law case and no longer wish to proceed with it. It cannot be used if judgment has already been entered.
