This is something that should have been done already. I assume you are representing yourself based on your question. You shouldn't be. You will regret it immensely. Call an attorney for a consultation at least. You need all the help you can get. You can get an extension of discovery in certain circumstances but you may not be able to in this case. As someone who lived in Valdosta and has worked in the courts there, I can tell you that you might be facing an uphill battle unless this is new information that was unable to be discovered before. You don't have a law degree or a license and by representing yourself have put yourself in the position of an attorney without the knowledge to do so. They may not give you the time if this is something that an attorney could have easily found or was available to you before. Call someone today.
A licensed attorney that frequently practices criminal defense in your jurisdiction can assist you in making a clear record of your requests for discovery and/or continuances.

Get an attorney immediately. If you are not able to afford one, request an appointed attorney (although it may be getting a little late for that to do you any good).
In answer to your question, yes, you can ask for more time. Whether you will get it is another issue.
