If you are currently the custodial parent, then you need to seek what is called a move-away order.  I cannot say this strongly enough:  YOU NEED TO GET A LAWYER.  Even for family law attorneys, move-away cases are more complicated than you would think. 

The good news is that you have a good shot at getting the orders you want--see Family Code 7501/IRMO Burgess/IRMO LaMusga.

Best of luck.
