Thank you; the Parental Relocation Act only refers to the custodial parent that wishes to move with the child (and court permission is required for that).
The noncustodial parent is free to move unless the court states otherwise- everyone has a constitutional right to move, but the move can result in a modification/denial of visitation.
The court always looks to the child's best interests, so if the move results in an undue burden to the child's schedule, the court may require the moving parent to have visitation in the child's home state (so school and extracurricular activites are not disrupted for example). But most will provide for at least one significant holiday and some summer break time with the moving parent.
If the parties are in agreement, they can enter a stipulation and detail how visitation will be affected, setting forth a new visitation schedule. Generally the court will agree if both parents are in agreement, and will enter it as a valid court order.
The child's home state continues to have exclusive and continuing jurisdiction under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act.
