Can I adjourn a court appearance in family court and how?

First, I am sorry to hear about your son. Getting the adjournment is the first issue and is not overly complex. The second issue, and the real issue is whether or not you have a right to have grandparent visitation with your grandchild. This is a fact sensitive inquiry that courts look at on a case by case basis. You would need to show harm to the child if your relationship with the child is cut off. The court would look at the relationship that you have with that child and if it is closer than a typical grandchild/grandparent relationship. I highly suggest that you consult with an attorney. Some attorneys in this area of law offer free consultations. Best of luck
You also need to send a copy of that letter to the other party or the other party's attorney and it should be sent well in advance of the hearing date listing the reasons for the request. Provide a good phone number to reach you. Good luck!

You'll need to request the same in-writing from the assigned Judge.
