How can I get an extension from the judge?

I need to get an extension from the judge because I have medical problems and a mass that come up on my MRI or could I ask for house jail?

    What do you want the extension for. Arraignment? Court Hearing? Payment of fine or completion of community service? If you have an attorney, your attorney should be able to get you an extension. If you don't have one, you may want to think about hiring one.

    I would suggest you get a letter from the doctor stating what the problem is what sort of treatment is needed and when it will be over.

    You should hire a lawyer to go to court to get the extension. A lawyer can do this without you present, so it is less risky for you.

    An extension for what? If you have a minor violation, such as a traffic infraction or some misdemeanors, you should have no problem. If you are accused of murder I would not expect any extensions. After all they have doctors in jail.
