I moved to from KS in December and my ex and daughter have

I moved to KY from KS in December and my ex and daughter have lived in Indiana for 4 years. Our most recent parenting time and child support agreement was filed and done in Allen County, Indiana. A year ago my ex and daughter moved to a different County (Floyd) in Indiana but remained in the same state.Once I knew I was moving, my ex would not agree to a new parenting time plan even though I was moving much closer so I filed for modification through Allen County in September. After jumping through many hoops, we finally have a date to mediate in February. Now the date is getting closer, my ex has filed a motion to transfer to another County where her and my daughter now live. Can I stop this from happening? She is clearly doing it to prolong the case even longer and she has had plenty of time to transfer it before. I do not want to go through the hassle of now finding a new attorney after I have already put I so much work and money on this case.
