Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, you could always argue and try and change the venue, based upon the fact that the child's permanent residence is Idaho and has been for X amount of time and the court there, should hear the matter. Moreover, if you did prevail, you could try and go after him and ask that he pay for the fees and costs associated with the hearing, if he did not have a good faith basis to proceed and his intent was only to harass you and cause you financial harm. You can not necessarily stop him from filing a motion, since he has a right to do so if he believes that there is a violation of his rights BUT you can aggressively go after him for the fees and cost if he does and does not prevail, for a second time.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
