Jean, thank you for the additional matter. Typically, a party will call the opposing party and see if they have an objection to a continuance. If they do not, you can inform the Judge that there is no objection and respectfully XXXXX XXXXX it be granted, upon the showing of good cause. In this case, if you did not contact opposing counsel since you are pro se
, it is alright. A motion for a continuance should be granted upon the showing of good cause and as long as neither party will be prejudiced by it. As such, the motion needs to be filed with the court and copies sent to the Judge and all parties. In the body of the motion, you want to lay out the basis for which you are requesting the continuance and attaching any supporting documentation, like you did. If the original date was postponed and you can not appear at the recently set date, the Judge will likely reset it to a later date. Rarely will it be set earlier. In this case, if you have heard nothing and the date is approaching, you can call the judicial assistant of the Judge on Monday and ask if this is something that needs to be set for a hearing or if the Judge will just rule on the matter.
