Venue Change


#1

Change in venue for what type of action? Divorce? Child Support? Custody?


#2

I would also like to know what the process is for this. I live in Ohio and have custody of my 14 year old Son. I have found it very difficult to do anything living 12 hours away by car. I have also found that the child support enforcement agency is unwilling to help any man if he is looking for support for his child.

They are very quick to take money away but god forbid if you need money to support the child for whom you have custody of. So as of right now I still have a signed court order from a judge saying to stop my support, but NC still wants a second motion and for me to show up to basically just show the order to another judge and for him to sign it.

I am so done with NC and happy that I no longer live there!!

Venue change as in from one county to another county. My son lives with me 95% of the time and goes to ex’s house every other weekend.

My ex may decide to fight it, and in that case is it better to have an attorney do it?

I have primary custody of my son and we have lived 3 hours away and in another county for almost 3 yrs.

Thanks

If you are trying to change jurisdiction from one state to another you will need to file for a change in jurisdiction. In order to do this you will likely need the assistance of an attorney in each state, who can guide you through what can be a complicated process. If you are simply trying to move it from one county or the other, you will have to prove that no one lives in the county presently exercising jurisdiction and ask the court to transfer the case to the county where you live.
