Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.
You will have to prepare and file a written Motion for Continuance alleging lack of notice of final setting.
Do I go to the trial tomorrow?
You show up and urge the Motion for Continuance.
Urge the motion for continuance due to lack of notification from the courts?
Yes, lack of notice from the court and the other side.
The otherside notified me at 6:11 P.M. today. That is not enough time for notification especiallyif my wife had to come from out of state. That means she was notified.
Yes, they have to give more notice than that. Usually at least three days but it can be more than that depending on what else has happened.
I appreciate your advice.
You're very welcome. Just so we're clear, yo need to draft a written Motion for COntinuance and present it tomorrow at the court. In it, state when you were informed of the setting and how and ask the court to continue it to give you time to prepare.
Best wishes to you. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) by clicking on a rating or a Smiley Face below so I get credit for my work. The experts only get credit from the website when you issue a Positive Rating.
