Greetings. Typically the courts only allow evidence of a substantial change of circumstances from the time of the first order of the court through the subsequent hearing, so things prior to the last order should not be heard. I do not know of this case, but you are clearly in your rights to ask them to provide you a copy of the case so that you can revise your negotiation stance.
I cannot imagine that you are asking for much and since we practice in Mecklenburg County, you may want to just stop by and speak with one of the attorneys in our Charlotte office to get an even more secure feeling. Thank you.
