Plaintiff is Citibank/Sears. I've been searching the forums and I know this has been answered but I need to file a motion for continuance tomorrow (today since it's 2:00 am). Initial hearing was 8/15, trial set for 9/5. My at-risk daughter was moved to a new facility on 8/15 so only my husband went to court. On 8/22 she ran and between social services, police, FBI trafficking task force and NCMEC, etc. I haven't done anything else - I spent 5 hours with the FBI today alone. I have to contact the plaintiff attorney and then I have to file the motion, correct? I believe in Jefferson County it's the generic form JDF 76 Motion to _____ and submit it with a blank JDF 77 Order. I don't know what to say to the attorney and put in the motion. How do I word the motion if attorney agrees/if they don't agree? If they don't grant the continuance then I'll figure out what to do next, but doing something is easier than undoing it. I apologize, this sounds so whiny... it's hard to change from one hellacious event to another and I just need some wording... and sleep. : / I've fought social services in court, obtained guardianship of my grandson when my daughter died, defended my handicapped sister in a section 8 eviction (with POA). I can do this.
