My question involves court procedures for the state of Florida & filing a Request for Englargement regarding answering a civil suit
A civil case was filed vs me in FL & I need more time find a lawyer. I've also been tending to a very sick dog & a recurrence of migraines has limited me the last few weeks so I got off to a late start regarding seeking council. I couldn't find a template on any of the county websites nor from the law library but I found something online thats simple & to the point. Is there anything missing from this template which should be included? What are the 2 lines for at the bottom after my signature?

***A lawyer mentioned to include this line, "this motion is made for proper purposes and not for delay, no party will be prejudiced in granting this motion".
Is that needed? Also, is it okay to mention my sick pet & the headaches I've been suffering or is that info too private?
