Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
A few quick questions.
I am the defendant in the case. I received papers yesterday stating my trial date is September 30th, but I am getting back from my Honeymoon a few days before and I need time to prepare. I am being sued by a law firm on behalf of American Express credit card.
1. So, I file the papers before the trial date on 9/30/10 or do I just go to the court on 9/30 and present the motion of continuance?
2. How long do you think the Los Angeles Superior court will give me for the continuance? Is it a month? Six months?
I thank you for your help.
