When is my answer to cross-complaint due?

Asked over 2 years ago - San Diego, CA

The defendants in my case filed an answer and cross-complaint on the due date of September 24. They mailed copies to me the same day. I know I have 30 days, but exactly by when does my answer to the cross-complaint have to be filed and served?
