Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney. Thankls for your question! I'll be glad to help you today.
It is possible to transfer jurisdiction of the case IF no one lives in the original county where the divorce was handled.
In fact, this is a very usual occurrence in situations where child support is being paid. HOWEVER, under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction & Enforcement Act (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Child_Custody_Jurisdiction_And_Enforcement_Act), the court would likely only be able to transfer the case from it's current county to the county of the residence of the child/ren (which is where the child/ren has lived for the past 6 months) because that court would have jurisdiction over the child.
So, in this case, if the children live in Texas, if a request to transfer venue/jurisdiction were requested, it's likely that the court would/could only send the case to Texas because that's where the UCCJEA says it should be. I don't know if you would be ok with that or not, but it would mean that any time you needed to make a change, it would have to be done in Texas instead of South Carolina. Thus, it may be better to leave well enough alone - - or at least make her bring up the issue.
I hope this answers your question, but if you need something further, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!
