Hello again --
If the only Indiana connection to this case is the fact that the money is to come from an Indiana Spendthrift Trust, then an Indiana court will not assist in questioning jurisdiction or the orders of a CA court in this case. First, the general jurisdictional rules state that a court can and does have jurisdiction over a matter if one or both parties reside in the state and even if neither reside there, if there is a large issue involving another party in CA or a CA issue, the court can also take jurisdiction. Secondly, even if the Indiana court were to take jurisdiction the most they would do is enforce the CA orders because of the "full faith and credit" clause in the US constitution -- which means that each state court must enforce the orders of other state courts (it can be challenged but it is difficult to do so and will most likely cost a lot of money in legal fees just to mount a challenge that you will most likely not win).
