HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Yes. You can submit your Response/Answer in a timely fashion and if need be have it amended. The Rules allow a one time amendment.You also may get the other party or their attorney to stipulate to a 15 day extension from the 30 day due date. You can call the attorney and make the request for the Stipulation.Here is a LINK to such a SAMPLE Stipulation, albeit from another CA court. But if the attorney grants it, which they should out of courtesy, then you would need to draft it and have them sign it and file it with the court.
OR you can locate a local attorney and have them contact the other party about the Stipulation to Extend.
