Requests for Continuance
Request for Continuance Procedure
  • Motion for continuance affidavits must be received by noon on the Friday prior to your court appearance.
  • Contact the court to obtain the Motion for Continuance Affidavit.

Reasons to Grant Continuance
A motion for continuance can only be submitted for the following reasons (must provide documentation with affidavit): 
  • A religious holy day where the tenets of your religious organization prohibit members from participating in secular activities such as court proceedings
  • Death in family
  • Medical reasons
  • Out of town due to work or previously scheduled engagement

Financial issues are not considered a valid reason for continuance. If any of the reasons above do not apply to your situation, then please contact the court.

Helpful Information
Please note: It is at the judge's discretion whether or not to grant the continuance. Submitting the affidavit does not automatically grant the continuance. As a defendant you are allowed one reset.
