A: You need to make copies. The judge cannot look over any evidence before trial. Also, just because you have a piece of paper doesn't mean the judge can see it. Many pieces of "evidence" are excluded because they are not introduced properly. You have to follow the rules of evidence, which can be extensive and complicated. Please consult with an attorney about your trial.

A: You can not submit your evidence to the judge prior to trial. In order for the judge to consider your evidence, it has to be properly introduced during your hearing pursuant to the rules of evidence.
