If she is planning to violate the geographical restriction in the order, being to her attention that you plan to file an enforcement and ask for contempt. Let her know she'll probably have to pay (reimburse) your legal fees as well as her own for the enforcement.
Then wait and see if she moves.
If she does you can file to enforce and/or to modify so the children live with you.
This answer DOES NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based on the limited information provided and is not intended to be conclusive advice. There are likely other factors that might influence or change the advice after a more lengthy consultation.
Your recourse is to file a Motion to Enforce the terms of your divorce decree. If you are successful, the court can award your attorney's fees.
I understand cash is an issue. But, you should not delay in hiring a lawyer. It is much easier (and cheaper) to stop her from moving than it is to get her back.
If you cannot come up with the funds, ask friends, family, or church to see if there is someone who will help you.

First send emails to you ex that you oppose her violating the court orders and that you will file a motion to enforce and for custody if she decides to move. Second file said motion and request for custody with a request for emergency temporary orders if she actually does move and violate the court orders.
