Contact your social worker first, find out the status of your case and make sure there are no restrictions on your moving away. They may have been placed by a judge if the case got to the court.
You need to speak to an attorney who does Child Dependency Law. It in part depends on what you mean by “case open” and where the case is procedurally.
Also, being able to move and a good idea to move are very different issues.
I’d suggest buying an hour of time to get some advice.
