23rd of January?
Thank you. The window is very tight. I say this because a motion would need to be filed ASAP. In the body of the motion, a party will want to show good cause / advise the Judge of why they need to travel and leave the country and provide specifics about their trip. The fact that you have complied with all the terms and conditions to date and this is work related, should be enough to allow the trip for 2 days, as long as the Judge does not think you are a flight risk but you do want permission. Moreover, you need to keep calling your PO and asking them the same. Once the motion is filed, you then need to get it set as soon as possible, essentially telling the court it is an emergency.
What do you mean letter?
Yes, it has to be in that form. You can ask the clerk for a blank motion and then write it on that but need to make sure the case styling is current. By that, I mean the court, case number, judge, parties, etc.
Yes, you do not need the letter then. The motion is essentially the formal letter, where you explain to the Judge the reason you want to travel and your request. If you have something from your employer as well, attach it to support your request
