I have a hearing in Murfreessboro, TN this Friday. The

I have a hearing in Murfreessboro, TN this Friday. The hearing is on my Ex-wife's Emergency Motion to Suspend my Parenting Time with our 3 minor children ages 6-3. The Mother and I are divorced with a final decree and parenting plan where we share joint decision making. Tonight, I received a Subpoena Duces Tecum from Ex-wife's attorney, I'm ProSe in case, for Clinical Records pertaining to counseling with our minor children. The fact that the kids were going to counseling was kept from me all together and hidden until now. I've even asked the mom in an email if the kids were seeing any doctors or therapist and got no reply. My question is, is there a way to keep the records out? My understanding from a previous case I was a party to is that because she did not let me know about the counseling that she cannot use the Therapist, the records, or anything relating to them as evidence in our case? Can you provide me with a statue or case law in support or does parenting plan govern?

In MO.... a divorce took place 3 months ago. They have 2 minor children, but in the divorce decree both parties agreed no child support order would be placed on the non-custodial parent. Can the custodial parent get an order now to pay support or do they have to wait for 3 years before that can be done?
