This is for Eli, I've been asking questions because I have already submitted my request for jurisdiction change. However, I did not submit the most recent judgement from Orleans Parish. I didn't have it available. I submitted a prior judgement. The judge here in Oklahoma did sign the judgement to change my jurisdiction. I was petitioned back to court in New Orleans on yesterday (my ex husband filed contempt charges since my jurisdiction was changed) and the judge there mentioned putting me in jail accusing that I fraudulently changed my jurisdiction. I panicked and left the courtroom not wanting to go to jail. Should I go back to the judge here in Oklahoma to rectify this or do I need to hire an attorney in New Orleans to dispute the situation there?
