THIS QUESTION IS EDUCATOR ESQ. I AM pro se in a civil case

THIS QUESTION IS FOR LAW EDUCATOR ESQ.I AM pro se in a civil case in WPB Florida. I'm suing a company for slander/ defamation of character as they published an online publication defaming my name, career as a realtor because I was a witness in a case against them in small claims court. as such I served a verified complaint they received and the attorney for the defendants as filed a:"motion for additional time to answer complaint and to file a counter claim"I do not think they should be given additional time to answer the complaint and their allegation in this motion that I published a defamatory online publication on defendant is false and there is no merit in a counterclaim in which they state they want to file.How do I address this to the judge? Do I write a motion to deny defendant's request for additional time to answer complaint and file counter claim" and/or in addition do I request a UMC hearing on this matter with the judge chambers??Do you know the require timeframe that the defendants have to answer a complaint??

I got served a civil action summon by a subcontractor in a

Hi, I got served a civil action summon by a subcontractor in a construction project. My company (Ltd with 3 partners) was the General Contractor but the owner filed for bankruptcy and stopped paying us so we also stop paying the subcontractors. But in this particular case I signed a form to Open a Business Account with this subcontractor which says (in fine letter) that I will be personally responsible for any debts by the company so they are suing me personally as a guarantor. The good thing is that the subcontract agreement was signed afterwards and it says that any previous agreements are void. Does this help my personal situation? Or am I responsible?
