APT TIME Definition & Legal Meaning

Definition & Citations:

Apt time sometimes depends upon lapse of time; as, where a thing is required to be done at the first term, or within a given time, it cannot be done afterwards. But the phrase more usually refers to the order of proceedings, as fit or suitable. Pugh v. York, 74 N. C. 383.
