Greetings. Since he has only applied for divorce in Texas, you can apply for child custody and child support here in North Carolina. You can apply for each issue separately. I would suggest that you contact the North Carolina Child Support Enforcement Agency and make a claim for child support through them so that you can complete this.
Also, if you believe you are entitled to alimony or if you have marital property which needs to be divided, you MUST file a court action for these claims prior to the date of the divorce, or you will lose your rights to alimony and equitable distribution. Remember that pension rights are included in equitable distribution. I hope that helps!
