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?
