    Hi, this may be a long shot, but is it possible to get a court appearance date changed if it conflicts with other responsibilities? Common assault, Magistrates Court, third appearance.
    Thank you

    As it's your third appearance, I'd say it's less likely. However, if the reason is a good one (ie, not just because you have to work), then if you supply the court with evidence beforehand they may agree to another adjournment.

    If it is for a hearing that may be more difficult.
