Can you? Sure. It's a motion to extend time to respond to discovery. Be forewarned: now that you've filed and the defendant has responded, it may be more difficult to find a lawyer to take your case, or may require a hefty retainer upfront. Good luck.

The defendant/ debtor has avoided bank garnishments so far but I have been notified that they have a Zelle, Venmo and Cashapp. Can I finally garnished their account via this method or are there any issues involving this?

If a creditor sued me and received default judgment then recorded it with the county, but later closed the account do I still have to pay them when selling the house?

That said, if you have a record you made the payment, you should notify the Court right away that you have paid it and... Read more »
