Yes, you are free to move to another state while your divorce in Queens is ongoing.
Obviously, if there are children involved or you plan to move property that is in contention, some matters may end up before the judge, but ultimately your right to relocate for work or other reasons is not impacted.
One of the downsides to moving out of state while your divorce in Queens is still pending is that you may be required to return to New York for hearings.
