I need to request a continuance of an AP non-evidentiary hearing

Customer Question

I need to request a continuance of an AP non-evidentiary hearing regarding a motion to dismiss that I filed with the court. Is this the same as any other motion or are there special requirements and conditions that must be met and do I have to list the reasons for the request - it is for a medical situation with my wife and I really don't want to get into details in a public forum/record if I don't have to. The continuance has been agreed to by the Plaintiff (I am a pro se defendant in this matter). This is in Boston.

Terry L. :

Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.

Terry L. :

You would file the request as any other motion would be. You can indicate in the motion that parties are in agreement to do so.

Terry L. :

You should list the reasons for the request in the motion as well.

Terry L. :

Thanks for your question, good luck
