No. You can appeal the court's decision but any custody case will usually be managed in the court of jurisdiction. You need to consult with an attorney in your area, one who specializes in custody and family law. You can file a petition for custody and/or a visitation schedule. Unless there is a question of fitness of the parent, courts seek to encourage healthy relationships with the child and both parents. You could visit the court and ask to speak with an advocate if you cannot afford to consult with an attorney.

How can you get your parental right's hearing changed to the county you live in now versus the county in which your divorce was filed?

The person must petition the court where the original divorce/custody hearing was given for a change of venue. There must be reasonable and substantiated evidence of why the change of venue is necessary. The other parent will have the option to testify against a change of venue, and also will need to show evidence of why they oppose it. The judge will weigh the evidence and render a decision as to whether or not the action is neccessary. The petitioner, of course will be obligated to pay all court costs and other applicable fees.
