I had established communication with the other parties lawyer through email. I requested some basic information to file my response to their motion. I pointed out something dis-honest about their case and then the lawyer responded by saying that any further communication would need to mailed via post office. I sent a reply back through email saying that communication through email by post office would take too long. I asked the lawyer if she would agree to a continence if I filed, since there was only 2 weeks left till the court date. She did not respond to me and I was unable to request a continuance. Is this common practice to require communication through post office mail? (There was a few other reasons I needed the continuance).
