Rule 297. Time to File Findings and Conclusions (1981)
When demand is made therefor, the court shall prepare its findings of fact and conclusions of law and file same within 30 days after the judgment or order overruling the motion for new trial is signed, or the motion is overruled by operation of law. Such findings of fact and conclusions of law shall be filed with the clerk and shall be part of the record. If the trial judge shall fail so to file them, the party so demanding, in order to complain of the failure, shall, in writing, within five days after such date, call the omission to the attention of the judge, whereupon the period for preparation and filing shall be automatically extended for five days after such notification.
