As for seeking an adjournment, you need to serve a Notice of Application for Adjournment on the prosecutor's office (each jurisdiction has their own template form), in addition to filing it with the court. You can get these forms at the court house. You will then be given a motion date so that you or an agent can attend court to request the adjournment. That's usually the difficult part----someone actually needs to attend court to seek the adjournment. Of course, any adjournments YOU request are also time that is counted against you---should you ever wish to raise any 11b arguments down the road.
What does this mean?
