    Answered . Yes. You can request a change of Venue from the Court where your orders were issued if neither Party is currently living in that Jurisduction.

    Answered . You need to provide more information in order to get an informed response. Is this a child custody matter? Spousal support matter? Child support matter? I'm confused by regulating court but in an attempt to answer what I think you mean. The court where the current orders were issued is the court you need to deal with.

    Give more information.

If it involves children and the county where the case is filed is not the same county where the children have lived for at least six months, it could be changed to the county where the children live for the convenience of the parties and witnesses if there is a custody dispute. The parties can also agree to transfer a case from one county to another. If the case was filed in the wrong county to begin with, it may be transferred on the court's own order.
