Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.

You would have the ability to recall the witness once court recovenes.You can subpoena her if she is hostile witness.You get subpoena from the court clerk and serve it on her.

Since this has been continued if you are unsure she will attend you would subpoena her to the next hearing date.This ensures you can call her at the next hearing date.

Here is self help and step by step to do that...
