The court with jurisdiction is the one that issued the original custody order or its most recent modification.

I agree with Ted. In California, to "record" something means to submit it to the county recorder, and that is not sufficient to domesticate your MI order in California. If you meant something else when you say that you "had [your] MI divorce recorded in CA," you should clarify exactly what you meant.
