I have a great job opportunity that would justify moving to a new state. But can I get in trouble for moving BC it may look like I'm running away from my creditors?
There is no sheriff that say, "Don't leave town, partner." This is all civil. You can go anywhere you want for any reason. There is no arrest for owing a debt. Live your life and make money. You are free to leave the country if you wish.

I agree with Mr. Rubin. If you leave and put in a forwarding address, they creditors may just follow you anyway. Even if you don't put in a forwarding address, you aren't restricted to stay living where you are now.
But understand, if you do avoid paying those creditors, they may eventually be able to take a judgement against you without you knowing about it. Then you will have some black marks on your credit report.
No. People relocate all the time. Good luck on the new job!
