Family court hearing for specific issue order

Hi,
Me and ex split up just over a year ago. All been about as amicable as it could be and we've managed to come to an agreement about everything (not always easily but we have) between us regarding shared contact etc, until this particular issue which neither of us is budging on - I've applied to court to take our daughter abroad to Turkey for a week at the end of July.
I've been ordered to send him all the relevant travel advice, details of our stay (my parents, sister and her family are going) by Wednesday, which I've prepared and will drop round at his on Wednesday. He then writes his objections in response to that and gives me that on the morning of the hearing (Monday next week).
My question is - will I have any opportunity to give any responses in court to the judge? I have no experience of this and am just concerned that some things that I feel should be taken into account (maybe I'm wrong though!) won't get the chance to be heard.
Thanksx

Turkey is a member of the 1980 Hague Convention so they should send any child back to the UK if they were to be abducted in any event

yes you will be given an opportunity to respond by the judge
