Once you have a hearing date (Spindled a Motion), you may want to come back and add additional motions (piggyback) to the motion call on the same day.

Piggybacking is fairly routine practice which reduces the number of court appearances. However, the court may or may not hear the additional motion(s) depending upon their nature, whether there’s enough time, or if there’s a need to respond. You will want to check the judge’s standing order first (if he/she has one—many of them are now online) as some judges do not allow you to piggyback a motion.

If allowed, you can enter your hearing date on your Notice of Motion, and file it with your Motion. There’s no need to pick a hearing date from the calendar because you already have a date. Also, the court will not stamp the hearing date on your Notice of Motion because you are piggybacking on a date already on the Court’s docket.
