I am reposting because I posted in Litigation by mistake . I am working closely w / an attorney , but he wants me to file motion to change venue ( plaintiff served summons 14 mos ago ) because he says bringing a new action will have to include any new marital assets . Someone mentioned we could start a " 2nd action " . Does that mean we can file our own Complaint ? I know we can file the R . J . I . and I think I agree w / the attorneys on this site that it's best to keep in the current county . Thank u so much and In sorry for all the questions !I mean, if I keep in current county how do I start a 2nd action exactly? I was already told about filing a motion to compel and sanctions. Is that the same thing? I was told (on here) filing for a change of venue could take months and it's already been 14 months since my brother has been served w/ summons. In that time he has been awarded custody of kids, has 5 yr order of protection against wife (their daughter has one also) and she has used all their health ins benefits so nothing left until June. His attorney doesn't want to drive 50 miles to other county and my brother is a single parent of 3..... Can't afford another attorney.
