Change of Venue Jurisdiction
How do you get a change of venue or jurisdiction in a divorce - child custody case. Do you petition the court? My divorce was filed and granted in Yavapai County. I filed there because that is where I got married. My 1 child, my ex-husband and I all now live in Maricopa County, where there has been involvment with the police and CPS. What does it take to get the case transferred to Maricopa County? Thank you.

Re: Change of Venue Jurisdiction
Moving the case to Maricopa County requires filing some documents in Yavapai, and filing fees to both counties. Once the case is transfered, all future matters would be heard in Maricopa County.
