Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** yes I am an attorney. It would be my pleasure to assist you. Why did you miss the deadlines for evidence submission? Also, what specifically is your question?
You can certainly request a continuance. Arbitrators have a lot more discretion than trial court judges when it comes to things like this. It would be helpful, though, to first reach out to the other side and try to get them to agree. The arbitrator may require some sort of cancellation fee to cancel, and it would help even more if you offered to cover the entire cost of the cancellation fee. If you have any good reasons for not having prepared and been ready for the current hearing date, you would want to let the other side know, as well as the arbitrator.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
