Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
CA has no jurisdiction over the case if the children do not reside in the state and nobody else resides in the state. He needs to file a motion to dismiss in CA and present evidence that nobody lives in CA and as such the CA court has no jurisdiction in the matter. Then he also needs to file in Texas and get an order from the Texas court where they have jurisdiction and they can hold her in contempt and jail her over this violation of custody. I would suggest using an attorney in Texas and they can get an attorney in CA to file to dismiss the action in CA at the same time as they file in Texas to put an end to this situation.
