Dear JACUSTOMER - The court has ordered an evidentiary hearing which means the judge wants to hear some testimony as to the facts of the case. Most courts will listen to a 14 year old and sometimes a 12 year old so you should certainly bring them as witnesses. In some cases the judge will order their testimony to be "in camera" meaning privately with just the judge. This is because most judges don't want to force a child to testify against a parent in open court.
You have not actually "won" the case but you have at least gotten the court to agree to continue with an evidentiary hearing meaning you were able to show that there was probable cause to believe the allegations are true.
Yes you are correct in everything you said. You simply will tell your story to the court and testify that the emails are true and correct copies of what you received. The court will generally give a lot of leeway to the pro se litigant knowing that you are not familiar with all the rules of evidence.
