Donald Trump's court hearing has been set for 14:15 Eastern Time on Tuesday 4 April, according to a court spokesperson speaking to the BBC's US partner CBS.
He will not be put in handcuffs when he attends court in New York next week, according to his lawyer.
Asked on ABC News how he expected the arraignment to unfold, Joe Tacopina said he was "sure [the prosecutors] will try and get every ounce of publicity they can from this thing", but added "the president will not be put in handcuffs".
He added: "I understand they’re going to be closing off blocks around the courthouse, shutting down the courthouse.
"We'll go in there… plead not guilty, start talking about filing motions, which we will do immediately and very aggressively, regarding the legal viability of this case."
