How do I get a hearing date?

I want to file a motion for reconsideration under California Code of Civil Procedure section 1008. When I file the motion I am supposed to have a hearing date and time. How do I get that?

Superior Court of California, County of Orange
Central Justice Center
Unlimited Civil

Thank you for your question.

What you need to do is contact the clerk of the superior court (the calender clerk is you need to ask for) and get dates for the hearing. Then you need to contact opposing counsel and see if they are agreeable to one of the alternate dates the clerk gives you. If you come to an agreement on a date good. If not, then you need to tell opposing counsel which date you are going to set it on and that they can oppose if they want. Then you call the clerk back and set the date.

Then, when you file your motion, you will state the date, time and place of the hearing on the first page of the motion.
