In order to request a change of venue, you have to file a written motion, or in the case of the last minute you are up against, an oral motion for the change of venue. You would have to show some evidence to the court that you cannot get a fair and impartial hearing in that venue because of her relationship to the courts. The change of venue of course is discretionary to the court, so you need to present some evidence of her connection to this particular judge/court, which would show at least an appearance of impropriety, if not an actual bias by this specific court.
