I have a conflict with a court date. How can I request to have the date postponed?
You will need to submit the request in writing and it must comply with the general provisions for pleadings in Maryland Rules 1-301 through 1-361. Make sure that you include a description of the good reason you have to make the request. You will have to include a certificate of service, which is a certificate stating that you have sent a copy of your motion/request to postpone to all the other parties or their attorneys in the case (Rule 1-323). It certifies when and how you served the other party with the motion. Allow plenty of time for the other party to respond. Remember that the court may still refuse to change the date.
