Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Your husband's lawyer is likely able to request and get a continuance for a few weeks/thirty days.....but not because of your health issues. The request for continuance would be for some reason related to your husband or his lawyer -- such as a need for more time to prepare for the hearing, etc. Usually, courts only give one continuance to each side.
However, if a continuance is granted, the judge should also continue the restraining order.
