How can a civil court pretrial conference be adjourned?
I answered a civil court Creditor summons and a pretrial conference was scheduled by the Suffolk County district court clerk's office. I am researching the adjournment process for a civil court pretrial conference.
Why do you want the adjournment? Generally you need the consent of the other side and to prepare a stipulation. If the other side thinks you are just stalling they won't consent. You can also try writing to the Judge being sure to copy the other side too.
