Going to Court
Continuances

If you have been notified to appear at a court hearing, you or your attorney generally must appear. If you cannot attend or need to reschedule, you may request a continuance. It is always up to the judicial officer to grant a request for continuance. There are no guarantees that a continuance request will be granted.

You can contact our Customer Contact Center at (866) 901-3212 to ask that a CSSD attorney request a continuance on your behalf or you can call the court clerk in the courtroom where your case is assigned. You can find the courtroom department on your court paperwork.

When you appear at court, the judicial officer may determine that more information is needed. The judicial officer may continue the hearing so that the necessary documents can be provided. See What to Bring with You for a list of documents that you should gather before the court date and bring with you. Please come to court as well prepared as possible.
