Court Procedures

Continuances

​​Request a Continuance

If you request a continuance for your trial, you must swear in writing and submit it to the court with your reasons three days before trial. The judge will make a decision whether or not to 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
  • Upon sufficient cause shown as determined by the judge.
