Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
If neither the parents nor the children live in Ohio, and instead all parties live in Georgia, then the case can certainly be transferred to Georgia. This would happen by filing a Complaint in Georgia requesting whichever relief the party is seeking, and making the argument that it is no longer appropriate for Ohio to have jurisdiction since none of the parties reside in Ohio. The Georgia court will almost certainly agree that it has jurisdiction, and not Ohio, and then it will rule on the issues at hand.
As for prior Ohio orders, they will stand unless they are in dispute and there is a justifiable reason to change them. They will not be ignored or re-argued or changed merely because of the change in jurisdiction.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)
