How many times can I postpone my traffic court date in VA? 3?
I postponed it once already, how do I do it again?

Death in the family or changing counsel. Be careful though, karma is a b!tch. -§

It's a simple equation.

Fire current atty + Hire new atty = Continuance. -§

i believe u get 2 by yourself. 1st by phone for whatever reason. second in court saying you need to hire an atty. After that u need an atty to request one, although there is no guarantee that it will be necessarally granted

When you make a call to that hotline to make a continuance, they are just filing it on your behalf. If you have enough advance notice, you can file yourself, via a mail to the clerk's office.

doesn't mean the judge will approve it, tho.

Don't forget to send it certified (or walk it to the clerk) or else you will be looking at a bench warrant when you get back. -§

I wouldn't worry about it. Take your vacation and deal with it when you get back. It's only about 10 days in the county for failure to appear and they'll probably send a car out to pickup you up. I think you'll need to get someone to pickup after you serve time so keep that in mind.
