Motion for Extension of Time Law & Legal Definition

Motion for Extension of time is an application requesting the court to extend the time allowed for the completion of some act , when that act may or must be done within a specified time. A court may, for good cause, extend the time:

(A) with or without motion or notice if the court acts, or if a request is made, before the original time or its extension expires; or (B) on motion made after the time has expired if the party failed to act because of excusable neglect.
