   A. A court may correct, open, modify or vacate a judgment, decree, or
   appealable order on its own initiative not later than thirty (30) days
   after the judgment, decree, or appealable order prepared in
   conformance with Section 696.3 of this title has been filed with the
   court clerk. Notice of the court's action shall be given as directed
   by the court to all affected parties.
   
   B. On motion of a party made not later than thirty (30) days after a
   judgment, decree, or appealable order prepared in conformance with
   Section 696.3 of this title has been filed with the court clerk, the
   court may correct, open, modify, or vacate the judgment, decree, or
   appealable order. If the moving party did not prepare the judgment,
   decree, or appealable order, and Section 696.2 of this title required
   a copy of the judgment, decree, or appealable order to be mailed to
   the moving party, and the court records do not reflect the mailing of
   a copy of the judgment, decree, or appealable order to the moving
   party within three (3) days, exclusive of weekends and holidays, after
   the filing of the judgment, decree, or appealable order, the motion to
   correct, open, modify, or vacate the judgment, decree, or appealable
   order may be filed no later than thirty (30) days after the earliest
   date on which the court records show that a copy of the judgment,
   decree, or appealable order was mailed to the moving party. The moving
   party shall give notice to all affected parties. A motion to correct,
   open, modify, or vacate a judgment or decree filed after the
   announcement of the decision on all issues in the case but before the
   filing of the judgment or decree shall be deemed filed immediately
   after the filing of the judgment or decree.
   
   C. After thirty (30) days after a judgment, decree, or appealable
   order has been filed, proceedings to vacate or modify the judgment,
   decree, or appealable order shall be by petition in conformance with
   Section 1033 of this title.
