Rule 107. Computing and Extending Time
(a) General Time Computation. When computing any time period more than 24 hours prescribed by these rules, by court order, or by an applicable statute, the following rules apply:
(1) Day of the Event. Exclude the day of the act or event from which the designated time period begins to run.
(2) Last Day. Include the last day of the period, unless it is a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, in which case the period ends on the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.
(3) Time Period Less Than 7 Days. If the time period is less than 7 days, exclude intermediate Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays from the computation.
(4) Next Day. The “next day” is determined by counting forward when the period is measured after an event, and backward when measured before an event.
(5) Additional Time After Service. If a party may or must act within a specified time after service and service is made under Rule 106(b)(2)(B), 5 calendar days are added after the specified time period would otherwise expire under (a)(1)-(4). This provision does not apply to the clerk's distribution of notices, forms, minute entries, or other court-generated documents.
(b) Extending Time. When an act may or must be done within a specified time, the court may, for good cause, extend the time:
(1) with or without motion or notice if the court acts, or the request is made, before the original time or its extension expires, or
(2) on motion made after the time has expired if the party failed to act because of excusable neglect.
(c) Entry. A court order is entered when the clerk files it.
