Roselle, IL asked in Traffic Tickets and Juvenile Law for Illinois

Q: My mom is possibly unable to be in the room during my court date, but if she is in the same building is that okay?

My mom apparently coincidentally has a court date the same as mine. She has hers first. Hers is more serious than mine where mine is just a ticket so she needs to be there. If I came to the room by myself, but show proof she was there before or after so my mom can attend hers would that still apply as a parent or guardian with me?

A: Just explain the problem. You won't be the only one in court that day. They can set yours to the end of the list or figure out something.

A: Go to your court room and when your case is called, tell the Judge that your mom is on her way and have her come down when her matter is taken care of.
