Per Se Response to Motion for Order to Show Cause - Chatham Cty


#1

Hi - i received a notice of Order to Show Cause on Tue, 2/21/17 with a hearing date of Mon, 2/27/17.

Can I file for an extension? If so - how do I proceed? Which form do i need?
I will be representing myself - so i’ll need to prepare a response to the motion. Which form do i use for this?
Thank you
Mark

Motions for an order to show cause are not required to be answered or responded to, so you do not need to file an extension of time. If the order to appear and show cause was issued against you, you will need to make sure you are in court on the date and time specified in the order and be prepared to have a hearing/trial with the judge.

I found that it’s a calendar call. Is that something I can do on my own or
do I need representation?
Thanks

You should be in court on the date and time that the order to appear and show cause states. Court will usually begin with a calendar call, which means the judge will call through the cases on the docket to see the status of each case and which ones are for hearing/trial.
