Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Greetings. What State are you in? Did you have any attorney representation in the case?
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts.
The way your question is phrased is a little tricky. To "submit evidence" all a party has to do is file it with the clerk and a judge may never know about it. However, to have the judge consider the evidence which was filed would require a motion.
Therefore the answer is no, a party can't submit new evidence and have it considered without filing a motion. This then enables the other party to respond to the evidence and then submit their own, countering evidence if they choose to do so.
