Thank you for contacting Just Answer. Please complete your question and I will try to assist you.
If you were just served and have 20 - 25 days to Answer the complaint, that gives you time until after October 1. That should be adequate time for your attorney to file a quick Motion To Extend the time to Answer the complaint, which are automatically granted. However, if you do not have that much time, then you should file the motion on your own, pro se, so that the other side cannot move for a default judgment either against you or the LLC. If the LLC has its own attorney then that attorney may represent you too in order to obtain an extension.
I hope that this information is helpful and that you will enter a positive rating. That is the only way I will be compensated for assisting you. Bonuses are appreciated too. I will be happy to answer follow-up questions which relate to this one. Also, since we are not acting as your attorney be sure to confirm our information with a local attorney. Thanks for choosing JUST ANSWER.
