Good afternoon. I'll be assisting you with your question.
Typically, a request continuance is filed with the court in a motion, setting out the reason you are asking for the case to be reset and giving notice to the other side.
Most judges set deadlines for requesting a continuance, so you should check on that.
The best thing you can do at this late date is call the other side and see if they will agree to a continuance. If they will, simply call the court and inform them of your agreement.
I will try that. Thank you.
If they won't, you will have to file a motion. However, since the hearing is tomorrow, you've left very little time for the judge to see the motion and issue a ruling.
Do you have any questions?
If you have any follow up questions, please feel free to ask. If not, please remember to "rate" my answer. Good luck!
Hi, If I am filing a motion for temporary spousal maintenance (basically amending my original answer to the dissolution - I am the respondent) how do I know what court date to put on the form for when it will be heard?
If you don't have a hearing date yet, you should give the judge a date range when you are available.
If you have a final hearing set, you can use that date.
can i call the court and ask them if there is a final date set and what it is? My attorney is no longer representing me as I could no longer afford it. my ex has been dragging these proceeding out to "run me out of money".
Yes, you can call the court and ask.
