Attorney2020 :

You need to file a request for a continuance. Explain in your pleading that you are compiling evidence and would like more time to complete you pleading. Typcically the court is forgiving and allows continuances on the firts request. However, it depends on your judge. . My suggestion is file the continuance pleading as soon as possible and still show up to the hearing and request for the continuance in person.
