    Default Can You Get a Continuance Without Appearing in Court

    My question relates to legal practice in the state of: california

    my brother has a court date for dec 19, 2018 re family law.
    he has no attorney, representing himself, wife has attorney.

    wife and her attorney agree to a continuance to late mar 2019, can the continuance be requested and granted without any court appearances. ( wife says her attorney will appear on dec 19 scheduled court date to request the continuance)? Does my brother have to be present on the dec 19th as well re the request? can this be done without any court appearances?

    If you are not represented by a lawyer and have not confirmed that a continuance has been granted, the safest thing to do is to appear in court as ordered to ensure that you do not miss a hearing if the judge does not grant the continuance.
