FORM SUMMARY _______________________________________________________________________________ Name of Forms: Order for Change of Venue Form Number: GF-120 _______________________________________________________________________________ Statutory Reference: §§799.11(1) and 801.52, Wisconsin Statutes Purpose of Form: Written order of the court changing the venue of a matter from one county to another, with directions concerning payment of fees. Note: If the court denies the motion to change venue, this form does not contain provisions for denial of the motion. If an Order is necessary for the record, that would have to be individually prepared by the party successful in defending against the change of venue. Who Completes It: Generally, an Order to change venue is completed by the party who was successful on the motion to change venue. When the court does not direct a party to prepare such an Order, this form can be completed by the Clerk of Court in order to effect the court's decision. Generally this occurs when the decision to change was a result of the court's own motion; however, there is no reason the form can't be used in all change of venue cases particularly since it addresses the issue of transmittal fees. Distribution of Form: Original to court. Copy to parties and counsel, if any Accompanying Forms: The entire case file will be transmitted to the new county of venue. New Form/Modification: Modification; last update 06/01. Modifications: Added “Court Commissioner” in signature area. Comments: None.
