Are there other barriers to regaining joint legal custody when children are out of state?
I'm wondering if there are other barriers to regaining joint legal custody with them being in another state. I'm assuming there would be barriers to getting joint physical custody, though I do plan to move there in the next year or so.

You need to hire a licensed California Family Law Attorney to represent you and help you out. You need to look at the rebuttable factors regarding the California Family Code Section 3044 presumption.
The primary barrier is indeed the distance; if a child is of school age, you just can't have substantial custody but you can ask for the majority of holiday time and off-school time.
