Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
In a situation like this, you can ask the Judge to continue the matter again. You need to show good cause and explain what happened that prevented you from retaining legal counsel and share with the Judge, how much more time you need. You need to be forward with the Judge and share what will allow you to retain counsel, so they do not think you are acting in bad faith and just trying to delay this.
Yes, that is correct. Explain the hardship that occurred which was not expected and share with the Judge that you will be able to afford counsel in the next 30 days and simply need additional time.
