    How to present evidence in response to court?

    Hi all, the defendant counter claimed in my first court hearing, which has caused my hearing adjourned. I am now preparing response to her evidence witness submitted subsequently.

    Can I submit to court my response only and present the evidence in the hearing? How can I obscuring the identifiable information in my witness evidence as I don't want anyone to face the consequence of reprisal from the defendant.

    Evidence in civil proceedings must be presented by a signed witness statement and must be provided openly to the other side as well as to the court. You cannot obscure or hide it and it will not be entertained if you try to do so.

    These are not signed witness statements. These are text and email exchanges between me and the defendant or between me and other sharers.

    According to your opinion, I can not anonymise the name tag for the text messages or emails. Can I submit my response only before the court hearing by the deadline and submit the evidence in the hearing?

    The text and email exchanges must be presented as part of a witness statement. You cannot hide the emails etc and produce them at the hearing. All your evidence must be presented before the deadline or not at all
