Thanks for your question, my name is Nic I will do whatever I can to help you today.

You are required to file at court all evidence which you seek to rely upon normally 14 days before a hearing.

Therefore when you go into the small claims hearing you can safely assume the judge has ready the paperwork from you the claimant and defendant.

Therefore the judge will read it on the day, before calling you into the hearing.

If there you have any questions or if I can help you with anything else please let me know.
