Milford, PA asked in Family Law and Child Custody for New York

Q: Can a copy of transcripts of previous proceedings be used as evidence exhibit/reference in response/answering papers?

Can i use what was said on the record in a previous hearing of my case? The relevance is what opp counsel stated in their affirmation or lack thereof and what was said on the record are conflicting. I’ve already paid for & received the transcripts; writing response papers i have cited the page and line # in specific relevance to a topic… I was unsure of it being admissible evidence.
