I was working in law enforcement until March. My child's mother falsely accused me of 273.5 PC and had her step dad's best friend arrest me. The report is completely falsified. I can't testify on my behalf in family court until the criminal matter is resolve. She is trying to move to TN with our child because her fiance lives this. I need help wording the motion to show good cause for a continuance. I don't think it guarantees me due process allowing her to even be heard for a move-away case while the criminal matter is pending, especially because I'm sure that I will win my case.
Sounds like informing the court of your pending criminal matter and your 5th amendment right not to incriminate yourself is a good start.
The MC-030 is, I believe, just a blank declaration.
Requesting a continuance of what? A motion, or a trial? Continuing a motion is much easier than continuing a trial. If you are looking to continue a trial, you should seek the advice of a family law attorney in your area ASAP.
