(a) All motions or applications for an extension of time to file the record on appeal shall be verified, shall state good cause for granting said motion and shall be accompanied by the following if the record on appeal cannot be timely filed because of a delay in the preparation of the transcript: (1) unless previously filed under Supreme Court Rules 30.04(c) or 81.12(c), there shall be filed a copy of the written order in which the transcript was ordered if such was done; (2) an affidavit of the court reporter, if there was one, or if not, an affidavit or other written document from the office of the State Court's Administrator stating why the preparation of the transcript has been delayed and the date on which it is reasonably contemplated that the transcript can be completed; and (3) if appellant has been authorized to appeal as a poor person, a certified copy of the trial court's order requiring prep-aration of the transcript.

(b) When the time for filing the record on appeal shall have been extended by this Court, all motions for additional extensions of time to file the record on appeal shall be verified, shall state good cause for granting said motion and if the delay in filing the record on appeal shall be because the transcript on appeal has not been prepared, there shall be included an affidavit of the court reporter, if there was one, or if not, an affidavit or other written document from the State Court's Administrator stating why the transcript has not been prepared within the time as extended by this court and the date on which it is reasonably contemplated that the transcript on appeal can be completed.
