Illinois - Motion to Continue or Extend Time

In Illinois, a Motion to Continue or Extend Time is a formal request submitted to the court by a party in a legal case to seek additional time to comply with certain deadlines or obligations set by the court. This motion is typically filed when the party needs more time to respond to a legal document, gather evidence, or prepare for a hearing or trial.
The motion must provide valid reasons justifying the need for an extension and explain how granting the request will not unduly prejudice the other parties involved. The court will review the motion and decide whether to grant or deny the request for an extension of time.
