This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.

You can file a motion for change of venue to Passaic County.

Then you can file a motion to change custody and adjust the child support amount for your oldest daughter.

Here are some links that may be helpful.

Here is a Passaic County court directory, here is the Passaic County self-help facility and here is a New Jersey courts self-help site. The latter seems most suited to your needs.

Here is the Bergen County court directory and here is the Bergen County self-help facility.

My suggestion is to start by calling the Bergen County self-help center to ask for forms to change venue to Passaic County, and take it from there.

Please let me know if you are comfortable using these resources, or if I can provide other assistance, okay?

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. I hope I have provided you the information you were seeking. If you’re satisfied with my assistance, your 5-star rating at this time is most welcome. If you need more help or have any further questions, please let me know so I can continue to assist you.
