Greetings. My answer is what you are probably expecting - MAYBE you can, maybe you cannot. The realistic picture here is that you probably can move, because he does not have the money to pay an attorney to stop you. If I were you, and I did not have enough to pay my bills, etc., and I found a better job, could be closer to family, and the area was good for my children, I would move and make him try to force me and the children to come back. I doubt he will. Best of luck.
