Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I am an attorney with more than 25 years of experience and look forward to providing you information in this regard.
This applies to all parties to the matter.
As you can see it states "Defenses and objections" etc. That is indicative that it applies to all parties.
However, if the attorney was hopeful of being hired, he might have been preparing to request an extension of sorts based on you just hiring an attorney.
Please note that I can only answer what you ask and so if you have more questions or need clarification, please ask it here. Otherwise, I thank you in advance for a positive rating.
Shall I file a motion for an extension at the deposition hearing
You can file a Motion for Extension but not at the Deposition hearing. You need to file that with the Clerk of the Court
It is a Request for Extension to file Motion for Dismissal? If that is what you want to do.
And then state why you want the extension. Provide a Court order of the Request being granted and then file both
Do not assume it has been granted until you have the order signed it has not
don't worry I will add to the fee when we get done but for you help I am just wishing to make sure I do this correctly The da filed A motion for to add a count 2 on the 21st day after arraignment this should give me justification for an extension but I would never assume a motion granted until it is I have filed ather motins and thus far all have been granted but I always operate as if they will not be
Good and I suggest that is a good frame of mind when proceeding.
is this a fair justification for asking for an extension for motions
like I said I have requested a motions hearing the judge said she would schedule one if necessary I believe very strongly that this was a tactic to force a plea. Please comment on that if you have an opinion in that matter I'm sure your advise would be easier to give if you knew specifics but I'm sure you can understand that with out privilege I can not do that. thx
Yes, there is no privilege here. I only provide information to questions asked. Not advice.
I suggest you are correct that the added charge is to encourage a plea for sentencing purposes. And given that the charge was filed on the last day, then I suggest a Motions here is in order and that you have justification to request an extension.
Thank you for the positive rating and generous bonus. Good luck with everything.
