From an interview in Die Zeit

"Ich werde in den Niederlanden studieren, von dort kommen meine Eltern."

Usually we would use "aus" (and not "von") in

Ich komme aus den Niederlanden.

NOT: Ich komme von den Niederlanden.

So, is it correct to use "von" (and not "aus") in

Meine Eltern kommen von dort.

? Is the change of preposition due to "dort"?

yes it is

Is the change of preposition due to "dort"?

that's the point. Changing from "Niederlande" to "dort" changes the preposition from "aus" to "von".
