If you are the moving party, submit a pleading that indicates that an upcoming hearing has been struck.  It is your responsibility to properly serve/notify the other party(s); or

2)    If you are the moving party, we accept telephonic notice that a hearing should be struck.  It is your responsibility to notify the other party(s) that the matter has been struck off the calendar; or

3)    Submit an agreed ex parte order in advance of a hearing (and let us know that you would like your matter struck off the court calendar).  The ex parte fee is $30.00.

Re-noting or continuing a hearing: 

1)    If you are the moving party, submit an appropriate notice (Notice of Hearing, Notice of Issue, Note for Motion Docket, etc.) that indicates when the matter is currently set and what date/time you’d like it continued to.  It is your responsibility to properly serve/notify the other party(s); or

2)    Appear at the currently-set hearing and verbally request a continuance on the record; or 

3)    Submit a stipulated notice (Notice of Hearing, Notice of Issue, Note for Motion Docket, etc.) that indicates when the matter is currently set and what date/time all parties have agreed to a continuance; or

4)    Submit an agreed ex parte Order of Continuance.  The ex parte fee is $30.00

Please note that we do not accept telephonic or emailed requests for continuances.

Aside from ex parte fees mentioned above, there is no fee for striking or continuing a hearing.

Continuing hearings involving protection or restraints: 

We cannot verbally extend a protection order or restraining order.  A physical order of some sort (Reissuance of Order of Protection, another Temporary Order, etc.) must be put in place at the currently-set hearing (or in advance of, using the ex parte method) so that protection remains in place pending the next/continued hearing.
