Common Writs are:
Statutory writs have short deadlines and challenge rulings in accordance with specific statues. Examples include writs to disqualify a judge or prosecutor, regarding summary judgments and adjudications, or criminal dismissals. The specific statue typically defines the deadline, and failure to file timely may result in the court denying the petition, and possibly losing the right to have the issue reviewed.
Common law writs are issued when the courts believe that typical remedies have failed. Although no absolute deadline exists, the general rule is to file no later than 60 days after giving notice of the challenged order. If an unreasonable delay occurred, your writ can be dismissed.
