If you need a continuance for your court appearance, you must put the request in writing and submit it to the court with your reasons at least one business day prior to the scheduled court appearance before the judge. The judge will make a decision whether or not to grant or not grant the continuance. You may request a continuance for the following reasons:
- A religious holy day where the tenets of your religious organization prohibit members from participating in secular activities such as court proceedings (you must file an affidavit with the court stating this information); or...
- That you feel it is necessary for justice in your case.
