You can’t call the court to get a new date no matter what the reason. You can ask the tenant to agree to a new date. If the tenant agrees, get this in writing and bring it to the Court Clerk before your original court date.
If the tenant won’t agree to a new court date:
- write a letter to the Judge or get an affidavit of unavailability from the Clerk to explain
why you can’t be there and bring it and copies of any papers that explain why you can’t come (plane ticket, hospital appointment slip) to the Court Clerk before the court date, or
- send someone to court on your court date to tell the Judge why you can’t be there.
Warning! If you send someone to court, or write a letter, the Judge may not agree to give you a new date and you may lose the case.
