In a child custody case in NJ, the Plaintiff (my wife, pro se) and the Defendant have traded interrogatories. There are several answers from the Defendant that we would like to call to the attention of the court in a Plenary Hearing. Should we enter the whole document in its entirety as evidence and call the attention to specific questions during the trial, or, do we refer to it as an Affidavit or something else and call the courts attention to an answer or two without entering it or the rest into evidence? What will be considered in evidence and not? Can we reference something not in evidence during a cross examination of a witness for the Defendant in an attempt to impeach the witness?
