Yes, once she files a lawsuit then she or her attorney can subpoena the records from the cell phone. Most carriers keep the texts for a limited time which changes periodically. I think the longest at this time is about 6 months.

It's not difficult at all to subpoena records. It's just a form that is filled out.

If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work.
