What does the custody order state- where are the children supposed to be? Also which state issued the order?
Thank you for that; so if the temporary order expired then there would be no basis for additional time unless the MS court orders it. MS has exclusive and continuing jurisdiction over the case (as the children's home state) so the father would not be able to file in CA. If a temporary order is issued it would need to be complied with, but the courts will look to the best interests of the child, and the father would have the burden of showing that it is in their best interests. One main concern would be their school schedule.
So absent a court order, there is no need to do anything. If he files for an order, she would need to respond and appear, and it is helpful to have a declaration setting forth reasons why the proposed visitation is not in the children's best interests.
