Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
How do you change your court date? The answer can vary by jurisdiction and even by court. It can also depend on the type of case you're involved in -- for example, rules for criminal court, probate court, and small claims court are all different.
If you're represented by a lawyer, then changing your court date can potentially be as simple as asking your attorney to do it for you. Your attorney will likely need to confer with the court and with the opposing party in order to secure a new court date. A court hearing may even be required.
But if you're representing yourself, you're probably talking about small claims or traffic court. If so, here are some potential ways you may be able to change your court date:
Each state has different rules for how to change your court date, so be sure to check your court's website or call the court clerk for more information.
Figuring out how to change your court date generally isn't too difficult, but people who are representing themselves in court can sometimes get confused by, or frustrated with, court procedures. It may be wise to consult an experienced lawyer who handles your type of case to make sure you're doing it right.
