Seeking a Change of Venue

My divorce was granted in Chilton County AL eight years ago awarding me custody of three minor children. Both my Ex husband and I moved to Jefferson County (not together). My ex-husband then filed for custody, and a Change of Venue from Chilton to Jefferson County. He was granted the Change of Venue to Jefferson County. I moved back to Chilton County, and within 60 miles of the AL Parent-Child Relationship Protection Act. However, my Ex-husband filed an ''Emergency Custody Hearing'' and was awarded temporary custody of the children unless I moved back to the previous school district. I would like to have the Venue returned to the Chilton County, AL where I now reside and where the original Divorce Decree and Custody was awarded.
