My original case was filed in Clark County NV, I have primary physical custody and have been living in Churchill County NV. My ex husband just moved back to LV and filed for a modification to the stipulation which I dont mind but, that means I have to travel to LV can I change the location to Churchill county even thought its the same state? In addition I cant be in court on the date set forth I will be under military orders in another state for training. Can I change the court date and if so how?

The concept is "venue." An explanation of what you can do -- and how much time you have to do it -- is explained in the "Jurisdiction and venue" chapter of the Nevada Family Practice manual, which is posted at http://willicklawgroup.com/grounds-and-jurisdiction/.
If you are not adept at such things, you may find it a lot easier to hire a lawyer well-verwed in jurisdiction and venue matters to file the motion.
