All requests for continuances must be in writing and filed with the court or faxed at least 48 hours before your hearing. A continuance request form can be obtained from our website. The request must include the case number, defendant’s name, as well as a good daytime telephone number. The court’s fax number is 216-381-1195. Keep in mind that requesting to have a case continued does not guarantee that it will be granted. If the request is not granted and you fail to appear for a court ordered hearing, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.
