How is it fair When a Judge lets the opposing party 2 agree on A continuance,when the Asking Party was not Given A Sufficient notice? Of course the opposing party is going to disagree with the request because it would give the requesting party time to obtain counsel or dispute the facts. So how come the judge would think that is ok or fair

A: A continuance can be granted by a Court for any number of reasons but usually it needs to be for good cause. The granting or denial of a request to continue a hearing is within the discretion of the Court.
