    Answered . Some of the judges stop the clock if your record is not seal. Its possible that your attorney said that he will provide more supporting document for your case and some judges dont seal record and stop the clock. Ask your lawyer whether or not he sealed the record. Otherwise he must write a letter to the judge to release the clock.

    Answered . There is not enough information in your question to give you an answer. The clock could be stopped for something as simple as the case being adjourned. Your attorney should be able to tell you why the clock is stopped.

    Good luck!
