If you are having trouble securing an attorney to represent you, you may also be able to ask the court for more time to prepare for the hearing. You would ask the court for a continuance.
A continuance is a postponement of a date of a trial, hearing or other court appearance. An order for a continuance may be requested from the court by one of the parties, or the parties may agree to stipulate to a continuance.
