Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Normal protocol would be to file a motion to continue the case with the court clerk and get an order re-setting the case for a date in the future. But, that's not practical here since your court date is tomorrow.
Instead, you will need to contact the court clerk first thing tomorrow morning, explain the situation and ask if the judge will give you a continuance........IF you do not get an affirmation that the case has been continued, you'll have to be there OR face being held in contempt OR being defaulted (depending on what the court hearing is for/about).
