What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas
My mother was sued in small claims court in Lamar County for recovery of half the cost of installing a fence. The lady that installed the fence had called my mother and asked her to split the cost of installing a fence between our two properties. My mother told her that she could not afford the cost of the fence and did not want to split the cost with her. Months later the lady sent my mother a letter describing the installation of the fence along with an itemized list of costs and asked that she pay half the cost. I wrote the lady telling her that we never agreed to share the cost of the fence and did not owe her anything. Again, months later my mother was sued in small claims court for recovery of half the cost. The lady is representing herself. There is no law in Texas requiring that the cost of a fence be shared. There is not even a law requiring a fence be installed. The suit was brought in Lamar County where the lady lives. My mother lives in Dallas County. From what I have read the venue should have been in Dallas County and not Lamar. I filed the Answer to the claim and a court date has been set. The proper venue would be Dallas. My mother cannot travel the distance to Lamar County to defend herself.
My question is what format should the motion to transfer venue from Lamar County to Dallas County take. Does someone have a sample change of venue form that they can share?
