Legal Question in Family Law in Florida

My husband and his ex wife share custody of their now 12yr old daughter. They have joint custody, and she sent him a letter stating that she was moving out of state with their daughter. At that time she was living several counties away and was unable to attend the hearing but did try to call the judge to voice his objections. By the time the hearing came, she had already moved to Alabama with their daughter, and he has only seen her once in two years. What would his recourse be? We want to see his daughter. Please help.
