If a parent moves out, leaving the kids with the other parent, can the moving parent still get custody later?

Yes. The fact that the moving party has moved out is not going to impair that individual's seeking majority time-sharing. However, I think it will make it more difficult for them to obtain majority time-sharing because there will have been a precedent set by the children remaining with the at-home parent.
