Hello, are you there?
In many cases you can wok with opposing counsel to get a little more time. Informal arrangements are acceptable if they agree, but get it in writing. Outside of that, you can file a formal motion with the court for an extension of time, but be sure to serve a copy on opposing counsel. They may argue the point.
I hope this helps.
Most requests like that are evaluated based on the particular facts of the case. That said, so long as it is not unreasonable or does not unfairly burden the other side, 60 days might be reasonable. THe important thing is to clearly point out all the reasons you feel it is necessary. If you are reasonable and your request not overly burdensome, the court may grant it.
I also wanted to mention that the Plaintiff requested a 90 day adjournment as allowed in discovery rules in NJ Superior court.. does this adjournment affect the time I have to respond or do the times remain as per the rules?
Can you give me a little more background as to what is going on?
