Filing in NC but moving to GA


My wife and I have been separated for 4 months. She has requested renegotiation of the separation agreement as it concerns custody arrangements for our 3 children because she’d like to move about an hour and a half south to Jasper, GA. We currently swap weekly and take the kids turn about which i like but does not seem to be working for her or the kids, so I’m leaning toward her request for more custody, but I already miss the kids when they’re not here with me, and I don’t want to get in a situation where it’s a battle over child support, because I don’t currently resent my wife and but I’ve seen a lot of guys get resentful when they get sued for child support every other year, so I don’t want things to go there. I really want to avoid committing to anything that i’ll later regret.

I would like to speak with someone about my options and how her move to Georgia would affect our divorce decree.

Also, if there was marital infidelity, do we still have to wait the 1 year separation to go through with a divorce?

Thank You
