This issue is complicated. I would need to see everything that has been filed and I would need a California order showing that the case is dismissed there and they do not have jurisdiction. I can not give a clear answer until I see what has happened in the case. I would consult with an experienced family law attorney in your area.
Beyond the issues you mentioned, you do refer to a UCCJEA conference, so I would imagine there are child custody issues. Where the children are located will greatly impact the appropriate jurisdiction. A full review of the orders issued in CA and in AZ are necessary to answer your question. If jurisdiction is proper here then you could re-file ;however, with the information provided it is impossible to accurately answer your question.
This answer is provided as a public service and is not offered as legal advice, nor does an attorney client relationship form between the party asking the question and the attorney or his firm that is providing the answer. This answer is publically available and therefore there is no attorney client privilege even if a attorney client relationship had formed.
