These type of games of hide the evidence are irrelevant. If your case law is "good" they are either going to recognize that and change their tune.

If it is "bad" they are going to recognize that and explain to you why they don't think it applies potentially saving you embarassment in court.

There is a chance your case law is good or bad so they try to find counter arguments etc... and the extra time they have is an advantage. This is a negligible benefit versus the first 2. Most family law cases are pretty standard stuff, and lawyers will be able to have competing case law.

If you want, ask that they send you "all" the case law they plan on presenting as well.

On the subject of case law, it bears mentioning that there is a list of commonly cited family cases, found here:
Family List of Cases | Superior Court of Justice

If those cases help you, use them.

If those cases help your ex, look to see if the facts of your case can be distinguished from the facts of the case that help her.
