You can try to call the clerk of the court and see if you will be able to get a continuance without going.
Otherwise, you will have to go to the court date and ask for a continuance.
If you cannot attend, you will have to hire an attorney to ask for you.
He doesn't have to represent you in the whole case but someone has to show up who is reprsenting you (an attorney) to ask for a continuance if you cannot go.
If the judge asks, you can tell him the reason or tell him that you're looking for an attorney to help you.
