URCP Rule 58C (Rules of Civil Procedure)


Rule 58C. Motion to renew judgment.
Rule printed on June 3, 2023 at 8:22 am. Go to https://www.utcourts.gov/rules for current rules.
Effective: 11/1/2016

(a) Motion. A judgment creditor may renew a judgment by filing a motion under Rule 7 in the original action before the statute of limitations on the original judgment expires. A copy of the judgment must be filed with the motion.

(b) Affidavit. The motion must be supported by an affidavit:

(b)(1) accounting for the original judgment and all post-judgment payments, credits, and other adjustments provided for by law or contained in the original judgment; and

(b)(2) affirming that notice was sent to the most current address known for the judgment debtor, stating what efforts the creditor has made to determine whether it is the debtor’s correct address.

(c) Effective date of renewed judgment. If the court grants the motion, the court will enter an order renewing the original judgment from the date of entry of the order or from the scheduled expiration date of the original judgment, whichever occurs first. The statute of limitations on the renewed judgment runs from the date the order is signed and entered.

Advisory Committee Note

The Renewal of Judgment Act (Utah Code Sections 78B-6-1801 through 78B-6-1804) allows a domestic judgment to be renewed by motion, and Section 78B-5-302 governs domesticating a foreign judgment, which can then be renewed by motion. The statute of limitations on an action for failure to pay a judgment is governed by Section 78B-2-311.

The Utah State Courts mission is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.
