The courts in CA and WA are to confer on the issue of jurisdiction. There was an initial child custody plan filed in CA over 5 years ago which I understand would give CA continuing jurisdiction, I have not lived in CA for many years, and my ex had moved out for 3 years right after we settled our case. He moved back 2 years ago and is now wanting court down there. Now in evaluating the home state section my son has resided with me in WA for over 11 months in fact most of the last 5 years have been spent here. We have significant connection here as well as substantial evidence. I am drafting my declaration under the inconvenient forum, but also feel that WA should qualify as home state. How much detail do I need to put? other points to make?
