    You can definitely make a request to see all those documents but that does not mean the opposing party will provide the documents to you. They may not wish to disclose them and they certainly do not have any obligation to do so. You can make your settlement contingent upon receiving certain proof so if they fail to provide the necessary documents, you can withdraw your agreement to settle. This is probably something you should discuss with your attorney if you have one.

    It is my attorney who I am asking to see the invoices. The copies that he has retrieved?

    I am a little confused as to what documents you are attempting to obtain but you are allowed to request documents from your attorney at any time. I assume you are wanting to do this to see how much money you will have to pay him after the settlement?
