Kirk Adams : Hi - thanks for looking me up again!
Kirk Adams : The court/judge can set the new date without consulting either party.
Kirk Adams : However, if the court date is not good for one or both parties, the court will usually approve a motion to continue the case to an alternate date.
Kirk Adams : Thus, if a court date isn't good for a party, that party should file a motion to continue and ask for an alternative date.
Is that date ever earlier because this date was pushed out 4 1/2 months.
Kirk Adams : It can be, but usually it is pushed BACK because of the back log most court dockets have.
Also it happens to be during a time I have a trip planned with my chikdren . Their mother will not agree with adjoining the date.
I have sent letter to the court with proof of airline tickets already purchased with so reply.
No reply from the court on my request.
Kirk Adams : She doesn't have to agree to changing the date, but you have to file a MOTION TO CONTINUE.
Kirk Adams : A letter to the judge/court isn't going to be responded to.
OK thank you again.
Kirk Adams : Instead, you must file a motion to continue, explain in the motion that you're not going to be in the state on that date, and ask for a new date. You would then have to send a copy of the motion to the other side and let the court rule on the motion.
Will do. Thank you.
