A: This is a very complicated questions that involves multiple levels of issues.

Deadlines and how the evidence was obtained, type of case and the judge all just a few variables that can keep evidence out.

I encourage you to contact an attorney to discuss your case in detail as it does vary case by case.

A: You have to follow the rules of evidence and present properly. If you are trying to represent yourself, its not working. Bottom line, you need an attorney.

A: You should consult with a lawyer on this. Evidence is complicated. Sometimes evidence is not admissible (hearsay), what kind of evidence it is, or the judge may not consider it relevant (even if you do). You can't make them look at the evidence. If they deny the admission of evidence, sometimes you can appeal.
