He has primary custody of their two girls. He filed because his children live, and go to school in, a different county from the old venue. She had her name on the outside of the envelope, and obviously it had to be an adult over 18, not connected. There is no need to send it certified, and she didn't, but without proper service, does he need to appear or respond? He just started a new job two counties away, during business hours, we aren't sure if he must appear. She has a habit of doing things in bad faith.Does he have to show up to the court date there is now that has been set aside just because she is contesting the change of venue? He just started a new job two counties away and she improperly served it. If she didn't contest it there would be no court date. Is there a chance he will not be granted the change of venue because he didn't go when he wasn't properly served?
