Time Extension

Your opponent may ask for a time extension. Properly done, your opponent will come to you first about agreeing to it. You might as well because the court almost always grants the first request for more time.

Before you agree, make sure you opponent tells you when they expect to file. Don't just say yes without getting a time frame. The usual extension is for ten days but they may ask for another 20 days for the answer to the complaint. If you don't get them to specify a date they can ask for 60 days or more saying you agreed. Lawyers will take advantage of you if you let them. To a corporate lawyer, the term "ethical conduct" is found between "deceit" and "falsehood."

After the first time extension they really need a good reason for more time. Resist further attempts politely.
