My divorce was finaled in Polk county Oregon currently I am in a spousal maintenance modification case with my ex. We now both live in Nevada (one in Clark county one in Washoe county). My ex filed using a attorney licensed in both Oregon and Nevada and I've been forced to hire one in Oregon. Since we both now live in Nevada can I get the current matter transfed to a Nevada court using an attorney licensed in Nevada. Response: Unfortunately, no, you cannot. Since your ex has presumably filed in Oregon, unless your ex consents to transfer of the case from Oregon to Nevada, the Court is less likely to grant your request for transfer. Also, if the modification has already started in Oregon, transferring the case now to Nevada would be a bit messy and would delay resolution of your issues.
