Legal Question in Family Law in Illinois

For spousal support pending case:

1. If the discovery is closed, can I file a motion to open it again?

2. If the discovery is closed and I need to send subpoena for records and documents, do I need to get Court Order?

3. If I send subpoena for records and documents, do I need to notify defendant's attorney -- do I have to send copies of subpoena to defendant's attorney?

4. I file Motion for Production of Documents on same day before court started. When I got to see Judge, Judge closed discovery. In this case is my Motion for Production os Documents quashed too?

5. How can I get copies of records & documents (bank statements, income tax returns, etc...) from defendant which I need for my trial coming up?

Thank you so much for your assistance.
