The relevant time frame is counted by calendar days, not business days:
You have 30 days AFTER the date you are served to file a response with the court. The 30 days include weekend days and court holidays. If the last day falls on a day that the court is closed, you have until the next day that the court is open.
instructions on filing:
The court only prepares forms for those forms that are most popular; here are a list of forms that are "pro forma" for responding to a lawsuit.
If a party is not using one of those forms they would need to submit their answer on pleading paper.
Then the respondent can put down all the information they feel is relevant.
If no response is filed the case will have a default judgment entered, entering the relief as requested by the plaintiff.
