you will have to put in appearance before the Supreme Court and argue the matter. It won't get transferred without hearing you, if you can make a good ground that it should not get transferred then excellent, and the petition will get dismissed.

Yes she can file the transfer application. The Supreme court has power to order transfer of any case. However the Supreme court may look in to relative difficulty of both the parties before giving any order.
