It depends on what the motion is. Also, keep in mind that usually a party can make any motion they want, but it will be denied if without basis. In many trials, after both parties have rested, if one party thinks the other party has not proven their case by their burden of proof, then that party can immediately move for dismissal of the case. It happens fairly commonly. Does this answer your question?
