The Williamsburg/James City County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court believes that control of a strict calendar leads to a more expeditious and efficient administration of justice. A continuance of any pending matter shall only be for good cause shown and with the approval of the Court. All requests for continuance shall be in writing and state the basis upon which the continuance is being requested. If a continuance is requested, the counsel or parties requesting the continuance shall submit to the Court an order endorsed by all parties stating (1) whose motion the continuance is upon, (2) the specific reason for the continuance, and (3) the proposed new trial date that is available to the Court. The party making the request shall contact the Clerk's Office for available dates. All continuances in criminal cases shall be to a date certain. If the Court grants a continuance request, counsel will advise client of new date. Continuance requests made the day of court will be discouraged by the Court and will only be granted in extreme or unusual circumstances. A complete copy of this policy is available at the Clerk's Office or on our local website. http://www.jamescitycountyva.gov/184/Juvenile-Domestic-Relations-District-Cou
