Not without court approval.
That said, New York courts today are much more open to the idea that the custodial spouse can leave the state in order to provide a better life for the children.
When this issue arises, the court balances the strain that such a move will create in the relationship between the child and the non-custodial parent against other considerations related to the best interest of the child.
If you have a job offer out of state, or family reasons that make a move seem worthwhile, it’s worth raising the issue with your ex and the court.
