Rules of the Court

Leave to Move or Plead

(A) Extensions of Time. Except in actions for forcible entry and detainer or replevin, when a party, in any case, is not prepared to move or plead on the answer day, one (1) extension of time may be obtained upon application to the Court for a period not exceeding thirty (30) days. Notice by the moving party shall be served to the opposing party or counsel, as applicable, and whenever possible, and the moving party shall obtain the consent of the opposing party or counsel. Any leave to move or plead thereafter may be had only with the approval of the Court, with notice to the opposing party or counsel, and for good cause shown. Consent of the opposing party or counsel shall not, in and of itself, constitute good cause. Applications for extensions of time, regardless of the consent of opposing counsel, must be filed at least one (1) day before the due date.
