Support and child custody/visitation are viewed as two separate issues under the law in North Carolina. Parents are not permitted to deny visitation with children based on nonpayment of support. You may have a right to alimony from you husband, but I understand that you may not have the resources to pursue that. If he is not paying you child support, you should apply for the services of the Child Support Enforcement Agency. Check their website at [url]http://www.dhhs.state.nc.us/dss/cse/cse_hm.htm[/url]
