You could register the California order in the Chancery Court in your county- which is a relatively straight forward process. However, I tend to agree with Mr. Bullock that, unless you want to enforce or modify the order right now, it may be premature at this time.
Communication with an attorney does not create an attorney-client relationship or constitute the provision or receipt of legal advice. Any communication from this attorney should be considered informational only.
I am unsure of why you need to move your case to Tennessee unless you are seeking to modify the parenting plan. If this is the case, you can file for the modification here in Tennessee, but he may come in and try to have the case heard in California. There are a lot of unknown facts so I am not obliged to comment further on the likelihood of that happening.
