This is a difficult situation, but the best advice is ensure that you are happy with the work you are doing. It is always a good idea to keep open as many options as possible. I would go forward with the phone screen, but explain your situation up front to them. That company may also be able to accomodate your likely move, whether it is allowing you to work remotely or connecting you with another location in California. Regarding your current job, if they would allow you to transfer, I would not burn that bridge right now. I would stay there, while going forward with your phone interview and see how that plays out. It could be possible that you might be happier at the new location to which your current company would transfer you. Bottom line, keep all options open, but always be up front and honest with any potential employers.
