Good Morning Everyone,

I was wondering if someone could help me with this:
We have had a review hearing back in August, but nothing was agreed and it was set for a full hearing in October. Both parties were supposed to file and serve their statements on 7th September. We did so, but the other side didn''t, because they changed their position the last minute, on the day. So they did it 2 weeks later, when we filed and served our addendum, reflecting their change of position. We are representing ourselves and also did the statement. Their statement contains all the supporting documents, but ours doesn''t - we read somewhere that you can submit the supporting documents at the later stage. What should we do now? Should we submit our supporting documents to the Court before the hearing, or should we just bring it there with us on the day?
I would really appreciate if someone has any experience with this.
Thank you very much.

Hi, we have contacted the court, but I''ll write it here in case someone else needs the same in the future - all supporting documents should have been submitted with our statement really. But we can still submit all documents backing up our statement, as long as it reached the Judge at least a few days before the hearing. We have to be careful that we submit only documents backing our statement, and not documents in relation to other side''s statement.
