Thank you for your question.
What type of case is this?
Which court is this in?
What do you want an extension for?
Have you asked opposing counsel for an extension of time?
I still need to know what type of case this is.
Did you use a judicial council form complaint or did you write the complaint from scratch?
There is a mandatory form to request an extension of time to file a pleading but it does not apply to filing an opposition to a demurrer.
Your County Law Library will have legal practice books with sample forms.
You would need to get a form from the library because I am not allowed to prepare docy=uments for you.
Is the case for breach of contract, damages for personal injuries, or something else?
Can you appear at the hearing on November 3? You do not have much time to ask for a continuance...

It would be easier to help you if you answer my questions.
The court is not going to give you more time but it will almost certaily sustain the demurrer with leave to amend and you can ask for the court to give you leave to amend the complaint if it grants the demurrer.
You can politely apologize for not filing an opposition and explain that you have been too ill to do so.
I still need to ask if you used a judicial council form complaint or wrote a complaint from scratch.
It would help if I knew what the cited as the basis for the demurrer(s).
I spologize for the slow speed of my responses, I am having trouble with the web site right now.
I understand you have not filed an opposition to the demurrer(s) but that is excusable if you were too ill to do so.
Please tell me if you used a judicial council form complaint or wrote a complaint from scratch.
