Small Claims Postponement Forms


When requesting a postponement, it is important that the defendant is notified if the date is changed. Courthouses have different requirements for notifying the defendant, and some courthouses will notify the defendant on your behalf.

When to use a Postponement:

Postponements are used to change the hearing date of a trial or pretrial conference to a later date. They are sometimes called Motions to Continue. There are also different deadlines to file postponements - if you file too close to the hearing date, the court may not process your request in time. In this case, you should prepare to show up on your original hearing date.

In general, postponements must have case information and the reason for requesting more time. Some states have a specific form that you need to fill out, while other states simply need a request letter.

These forms have been gathered and/or prepared without any warranty or guarantee of their effectiveness, correctness, or validity to resolve any issue. They are provided for convenience for those who know exactly what they need. If you are unsure, please contact an attorney near you to get the legal advice you need.
