The request must be approved by the judge. It depends on the circumstances of why you want the date changed. If the request is reasonable, the judge will probably grant the request.
Attorney can ask for delay or continuance and state a reason. Judge determines whether it can be changed or not. Attorney can contact prosecutor or other attorney and agree to change and get okay then take to judge. Usually will change if a good reason. But won’t let unreasonable delay.
I’m wondering, isn’t it the court clerk that would have that info. Also, the lawyer should know how much time he/she has to request a date change as well as the process involved. You can always go on line in your state, and look for the court procedures for that court in your state. A safe bet would be to ask your lawyer. They would know, and he/she would know for your particular case/situation.
