Two years ago, I filed for custody of my son, in Cook County (where we resided at the time). Last year, I was awarded temporary custody; final custody determination has not yet been made. My son and I moved to Lake County, and have now lived here for over a year; the child's father currently resides in another state. Will the Cook County Circuit Court agree to transfer jurisdiction to Lake County, if I file a motion requesting this?(from my direct comment to Ms. Goldstein's answer) I am certain the Respondent will object to the change (even though he has not resided in the State of IL for several years...), simply because his attorney's practice is literally walking distance from the Daily Center -- is inconvenience to his attorney considered a valid objection?
