What is a Motion To Transfer Venue?

A motion to transfer venue is a request to the court that the action be transferred to a different court. A motion to transfer venue is made before trial. It will likely request a change of venue from the court in which plaintiff filed the action to another town, county, or city within that particular jurisdiction. These motions must be supported by credible evidence that the current choice of venue prejudices the moving party in some way that is easily avoidable.
