Answer:

A.R.S. section 23-681 (http://www.azleg.gov/ars/23/00681.htm provides that a scheduled hearing may be postponed if a party shows good cause. Good cause exists if the request is reasonable or the circumstances are beyond the control of the party. It also must be shown that failure to grant the postponement would result in undue hardship to the party.
