Q: Can I ask for more time when I show up for my ACD court date?
I have not yet completed the DDP program but I am enrolled, my court date is in a few days, can I show up, pay the fine but ask for more time to complete program and present myself to show proof?
A: As long as you can show proof to the court/prosecutor that you are currently in compliance with the court's order, and there is no violation (e.g. missing class dates, etc.) then there should be no problem asking the court for additional time to complete your classes. You will simply get a new court date. If you are still worried to go it alone, hire an attorney in your area to help you (or use the services of an attorney you have previously used in your case.) Good luck to you.
