To request a continuance (only one (1) request will be allowed and it must be done by the close of business time on the day prior to your scheduled 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 notary):
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
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.
Please note: It is at the judge’s discretion whether or not to grant the continuance. Submitting the notarized documentation does not automatically grant the continuance. As a defendant, you are allowed one reset.
