A “motion” is a written request that tells the judge what the person wants the judge to order and why. Either the Plaintiff or the Defendant can file a motion. A court date is set for any motion that is filed.
The other party can file a written “opposition and countermotion" if he or she disagrees with the other party’s requests.
