Hi, I'm Lea
What type of hearing is it?
Has your daughter contacted the other party's solicitor at all?
Yes, she is obliged to discuss her request for an adjournment with the other side before approaching the court. If she had done so, she may have found that they would have agreed to the adjournment - and the solicitor would have written to the court requesting it on the basis of the agreement.
Having bypassed them, and leaving it this late, it is unlikely the court will agree to an adjournment.
Your daughter may have better luck getting a direct access barrister for the hearing - see here: https://www.directaccessportal.co.uk/search/1/barrister
