Ok, thank you
You have 45 days from the date you were served the summons and complaint to file the Financial Affidavit.
If you need an extension, you may file a Motion for Extension to file the Financial Affidavit and state that you and she are in negotiations
Though the court might not grant it. But you can ask. OR you can simply wait until she says you have not filed it.
But the answer Is 45 days - that is 25 more days after your 20 day deadline to file your Response.
