Per Se asking for a continuance?

What would be the best way to go about asking for a continuance for an ED that is scheduled for trial next week (we are PER SE)? Can a letter (or request) be mailed & filed in court PRIOR to the trial asking for the continuance…or does it have to wait till the day of trial? And what’s the chances of getting a continuance since we are Per Se? The reason for the continuance is to obtain legal counsel.

You should file a motion to continue as soon as possible. Your best chance at a continuance requires you to be proactive and to wait until the date of the hearing.
