How do you get a change of venue from one county to another?
You have to file a written notice of motion to the court for an
order granting a change in venue to another county. Check with the
Clerk of the court in which your action is pending for the rules of
procedure making motions in general and motions for changes in
venue in particular. You will most likely have to at the very least
file an affidavit showing facts that prove that you will not be
able to receive a fair hearing in the present county of venue.
This is generally not an easy thing to do since changes in venue
are usually based on advance adverse publicity so pervasive it
would prevent a jury from the area from giving an unbiased verdict.
If this is a child support matter (since that is the original
category) there is no jury involved. Thus you would probably have
to prove that there is something within that county's court system
that would prevent you from getting an unbiased ruling.
