Leave of Absence
When filing a Motion for Leave of Absence an original must be filed for each case, or, if filing one leave and attaching a list of cases, a copy must be provided to be filed in each case. The Court does not require an order to be filed with each case; the Court has a standing order.
Notice of Court dates are either acknowledged in person or are mailed to the Defendant.
Change of Address
It is the defendant’s responsibility to notify the court in writing of any change of address. Sureties and attorneys are also responsible for notifying the court in writing of any change of address. The change of address must be submitted on each case in which the defendant, surety, and/or attorney is associated. Failure to do so could result in not receiving notification of a court date change, which could result in a bench warrant being issued for failure to appear.
