You should consult with a lawyer. Whether the court would dismiss the case or transfer it to the county you reside, would depend upon facts not present in your post.

Perhaps you can file a motion to dismiss if you have a legal basis for doing so, but no longer living in that county may not provide that for you. I suggest you speak with a local NY Family Law attorney for specific advice. Good luck!
