A request for a court order must be made by motion. The motion must: • be in writing unless made during a hearing or trial; • state with particularity the grounds for seeking the order; and • state the relief sought. A continuance is a postponement of a date of a trial, hearing or other court appearance. An order for a continuance may be requested from the court by one of the parties, or the parties may agree to stipulate to a continuance. A court is more likely to decline a continuance if there have been other previous continuances. A continuance may be requested for various reasons, such as unavailability of an attorney or interested party, necessity of extra time to prepare for the matter, and several other grounds.
