Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com with your question. I will provide legal information related to your question.
Since you have a court order that was issued in CA you would need to motion with that court to modify the current order to allow you to live in FL and to issue a visitation order relating to time they will spend with their father and how the travel will be paid for. It is easier to get the current order modified if the father agrees, but if he fights it, you will have to return to CA to have a court hearing to get the court to decide what is best for the children.
