A: You question makes no sense - the Court does not do what you are asking about. Are you saying your mother has subpoenaed your your cell phone records as part of a current court action and you are wondering how long it will take for her to receive them? If so - assuming the cell phone company cooperates and makes with the info, it will take as long as it takes. There is no set in stone time frame. If this isn't what you are asking about try and be a little more specific. Best of luck!
