To request a continuance in Montgomery County, you should address a letter to the court and file it with the Commonwealth’s Attorney office. This must be done at least three days prior to your court date, but preferably 10 days, and in most cases your first time continuance request is granted by the clerk. (If you file a continuance request with less than 10 days before your court date, you may have to appear before the judge on your court date to ask for a future continuance.)

If your felony case has been certified to a grand jury, it will be pre-set to the next following term month. In Montgomery County, term months are January, April, July, and October. In most instances, your defense attorney will coordinate with the Commonwealth’s Attorney office to pre-set the case. We work with our clients to select a pre-set date.
