Hello,My name is XXXXX XXXXX I had filed bankruptcy in Nov 2011

Customer Question

Hello,
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I had filed bankruptcy in Nov 2011 due to a lawsuit where the attorney was trying to collect for a pro-bono case he had accepted. After filling bankruptcy, the lawsuit was stayed, but the attorneys firm filed for an adversary proceeding in the bankruptcy court. The complaint was filed on March 8, I was notified about it on March 12 by my attorney and I was served on MArch 16th. This case in in FL and I have been in CA since January. The mail was forwarded and recieved by me after March 16. The summons were served at my mom's house and she signed for them on MArch 16th. Due to my physical presence, training requirements & the complexity of the civil lawsuit and its possible criminal ramifications, I was having a hard time finding an attorney who can answer this adversary to try to dismiss it but couldnt find one in the time period and my deadline to respond is 30days from MArch 9, so thats today. I spoke with my bankruptcy attorney(they dont handle adversaries) and spoke with the Judge's assistant and I figured I will file for a motion for extension so I can get more time to find the suitable attorney to respond to this matter. (she explained me how to fax to the after hours mailbox and to submit originals by Monday)My questions are:
1.What template do I use to file for the extension?
1.a: How much extension can I ask for reasonably? 30days is what I need.
2.Is this template acceptable in state of FL
(http://bodowlaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/answer.pdf)
If not,Can you please advise where to look up for a template?
3.What is a General denial mean? How can I file that? How will that impact my lawsuit
and my bankruptcy process?
4.The attorney has twisted the lawsuit to make it sound like I did some 'fraud' how can I dispute that matter? (I figured that will be handled when i am responding to the lawsuit)
5.Any other options I have to buy time?
Please read this and answer in details. Your time and help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Is there a reason no expert answered this? I can rephrase the Q if needed.
