Ford had already indicated that she can not be prepared by Monday, as the current schedule for a hearing in front of the Senate judiciary committee demands.
Prof Ford earlier declined the Senate's offer to testify unless the FBI began investigating the judge.
In New Hampshire, Collins said she has assembled a team of 19 attorneys to help her understand Kavanaugh's record and was about 95 percent finished with her analysis when she spoke to him by phone September 14, after the allegations against him became known but before Ford came forward publicly. "A hearing on Monday is not possible and the committee's insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event".
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh arrives on the first day of his confirmation hearing in front of the Senate on Capitol Hill in Washington, on September 4, 2018.
She said Professor Ford needed time to make sure her family was secure, prepare her testimony and travel to Washington.
"Someone who is lying does not ask the FBI to investigate their claims", she said.
On Friday the U.S. president tweeted: "I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. Her email has been hacked, and she has been impersonated online", the letter said.
"I will be there".
"I just granted another extension", Grassley wrote around midnight Friday.

Since then, Congress and the country at large have been embroiled in a debate about how to move forward with Kavanaugh's nomination. "The host of that party added his name to this letter to the Judiciary Committee attesting to Kavanaugh's character".
Trump rejected the credibility of Ford's claim that a drunken Kavanaugh tried to pin her down and remove her clothes, muffling her cries, in the early 1980s. Earlier this week, Ford and Democrats called for a FBI investigation into her allegations against Kavanaugh before moving ahead.
The timetable brought cries of protest from Democrats, who have called on the FBI to investigate the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from California, and to expand the number of witnesses who would be called beyond Ford and Kavanaugh.
But they're eager to avoid the spectacle of 11 Republican men cross-examining a woman who says she's been victimized by a man. Whelan apologized Friday morning, tweeting that he "made an appalling and inexcusable mistake of judgment in posting the tweet thread in a way that identified Kavanaugh's Georgetown Prep classmate". The remark was her biggest tip of hand yet on how she might vote on Kavanaugh. Robert Byrd, D-N.C., said when new evidence arose about a Supreme Court nominee he had previously supported, "No individual has a particular right to a Supreme Court seat.If we are going to give the benefit of the doubt, let us give it to the court".
A petition backing Prof Ford, signed by more than 1,000 alumnae from Holton-Arms, her former Maryland high school, was delivered on Thursday to two Democratic women senators.

Professor Ford has said she didn't tell anyone at the time about the incident. "Dr. Blasey Ford's experience is all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton".
Trump's outburst saw a new #MeToo era hashtag storm the internet, with #WhyIDidntReport the top trending conversation starter on US Twitter Friday, as people, mostly women, vented outrage over past transgressions and voiced solidarity with Ford.
