Hello, my name is Ely. I am here to help you. There may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a reply. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) my function is to give you honest
information and not to tell you what you necessarily wish to hear.
You do not file a "change of jurisdiction" pleading. One would file a Petition to Register Foreign Judgment
under the Uniform Child Custody
Jurisdiction And Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). To register a judgment from another state to be enforced in California (assuming UCCJEA allows it), a certified copy of that judgment must be filed in the Superior Court of the county in which it is to be enforced:
Someone in your situation would file this back to back
with any modification requests in California to have it enforced.
See California's adaptation of UCCJEA:http://www.lrcvaw.org/laws/cauccjea.pdfIMPORTANT INFO
: I hope this finds you well. Please use REPLY TO EXPERT
to keep talking, or RATE
my answer when we are finished. Kindly rate my answer as one of the top three faces
because this is how I get credit for my time with you. Rating my answer the bottom two faces does not give me credit and reflects negatively on me as an expert even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith. Do not worry, you may always ask follow ups free after rating
